How do I set up a CustomLink to JSTOR?

JSTOR is an independent, nonprofit organization with a mission to create an archive of important scholarly journals, which offer broad access. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. The entire corpus is full-text searchable, offers search term highlighting, includes high-quality images, and is interlinked by millions of citations and references. You can link directly from search results in the EBSCOhost databases to the full text on JSTOR.
