Where are the print journals & newspapers in the library?
Journals and magazines are located on the 3rd floor of the Library in the Periodicals area. We have nearly 400 titles in print covering a variety of topics to assist you in your research. Journals may not be checked out of the Library, but there are photocopiers on all three floors for your use. Copies cost 5 cents per page. Older issues of journals and newspapers are on microform. We have a microform reader that can be used to read journal articles, or print hard copies from the microform.
The Periodicals Department can also help you locate and obtain articles from magazines, journals and newspapers unavailable in the Library or online.
How do I find a specific magazine/journal/newspaper?
All print and microform periodicals (magazines, journals, and newspapers) are located on the 3rd floor of the Library. They are in alphabetical order by title on the shelves. Lists of the magazines and newspapers the library owns are available online.
Where can I check out magazines/newspapers?
What if the magazine/newspaper issue is older than the ones on the shelf?
What if I found a great article from my computer search and you do not carry the magazine/journal?
With so much available online, what are the advantages to using print copies of periodicals?
