of the journals archived in JSTOR it can be difficult to get
online copies of papers that appeared prior to the early
1990s. When you need such papers, and they are not available
in hardcopy form in the library collection, your best option
is to request photocopies of the articles via interlibrary loan.
Postgraduate students are eligible to make 40 free
ILL requests per semester (anything over 40 needs to be paid for).
