JSTOR Offers Early Journal Content for Free

JSTOR, a not-for-profit scholarly digital archive which primarily
serves libraries and academic institutions, has announced it will
make its "journal content published prior to 1923 in the United
States and prior to 1870 elsewhere freely available to anyone,
anywhere in the world. This
Journal Content includes discourse and scholarship in the arts and
humanities, economics and politics, and in mathematics and other
sciences. It includes nearly 500,000 articles from more than 200
journals . . . Making the Early Journal Content freely available is a
first step in a larger effort to provide more access options to the
content on JSTOR for these individuals."

Sounds like good news, it true.
