JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources.
literary-mutt asked: Hey JSTOR! I want to submit a photo of where I'm studying for your giveaway, but I don't see a "submit" button on your blog. Am I missing something? Should I simply post the photo on my blog with the hastag "#JSTORfinals"?
Yes! Just post to your own page and tag it! I shall find you.

I’m a procrastinator with terrible habits who never changes
but my past self is really smart and already looked up all the relevant free articles for my research on JSTOR and organized them by usefulness
thank you past self
Also a shout out to jstor for letting you make free accounts to read articles online with. I don’t know how I’d find useful articles on miraculous wells in medieval Ireland without you.
As purveyor of miraculous wells in medieval Ireland, we are happy to be helpful!

We are super excited to announce Global Plants in the Classroom: Botany 101, a free resource and study aid to help teachers and students use the Global Plants database.  
It consists of nine units that introduce basic concepts in the study of botany. Each unit includes key concepts, vocabulary, and example materials. We have also selected Global Plants resources and journal articles on JSTOR that are pertinent to each unit, and we provide assignments to further reinforce the concepts discussed.
Our aim is to encourage curiosity and exploration of the Global Plants content. This resource was developed with support from the Global Plants Initiative partners, including Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Claire Hopkins, creator of the Brilliant Botany blog.
