8c. Finding periodicals in the library

Where are the periodicals (journals, magazines and newspapers) located?

Almost all of the hard-copy (print) periodicals are located on the second floor of Perry Library with the exception of those considered government publications. Some art periodicals are also available in the Hofheimer Art Library.

Current Print Periodicals

Most current issues are shelved beside the bound periodical volumes with the same title--still on second floor (by call number).

Bound Print Periodicals

Bound periodicals are arranged by call number and located on shelves in the the main part of the second floor. Use the Library's online catalog to find the call number of a specific periodical.


Some materials are available in either microfilm or microfiche format. For instance, backfiles of newspapers and some journals are kept in microfilm. Special readers and printers are available. Microforms staff members are available to assist you.
