JSTOR has a number of sub-subscriptions (or groups) where each group packages an entire swath of materials and we have access to certain groups but not all of them. Because of this, our JSTOR account may not have an article you have found through a Google search or similar means. 

If you are searching through JSTOR, you can go to Advanced Search and specify whether or not you want only materials to which we have immediate access.

If you find an article that our JSTOR subscription does not include, you can go to our "Find a Journal Title" page and see if one of our databases has the journal, or if we have it in print or in microfilm.

If not, you can also request an Interlibrary Loan for the article. Note that is not an immediate turn around, but can take 3-5 days (and as much as double, depending on factors).
