The JSTOR database has changed its at home log-in system. In the past, students made accounts and then logged in using their own username and password. Those accounts are now invalid. In order to use JSTOR at home, use the school username, nphslibrary.
The password can be found on the "database passwords for home use" page above which is under the "helpful links" tab.
Make sure that when you log in, you use the fields on the left - "MyJSTOR Username" and "MyJSTOR Password" even though it is now a school username and password.
