JStor Expands Free Access to Scholarly Books and Articles

J. Mornini at the Intellogist blog tells us that JStor is releasing lots more scholarly books and articles into their free access Register and Read program.  This includes some materials of interest to legal researchers.  The blog directs the reader to a JStor press release: ...with Register & Read, people can visit JSTOR directly and read any of more than 4.5 million articles for free. They can put up to three articles on their bookshelf where they must be held for a minimum of two weeks, after which more free articles can be shelved. In addition, for 40% of these articles, people also have the option of downloading them to keep or read offline for a fee.
