Examples of periodicals include journals, magazines and newspapers.

  • Single most comprehensive search of all the library's periodicals is the Journal Finder search
  • If you have a reference to a specific article already, use Citation Search to locate the full text (or request it using the interlibrary loan service)
  • If you just want to search for articles by subject, start with the main library search (, click on the Articles tab, and type in your search. Alternatively, select one of the many Subject Guides (LibGuides) that are available, and look at the Find Articles tab for subject-specific article sources.
  • Print journals:
    • Most recent copies of journals are housed the Reading Room, main level, south end, and are arranged alphabetically by journal title
    • Older issues of journals are located in the lower level of Buswell (on moveable shelving) and are arranged by subject (Dewey Decimal system)
