The third floor Periodicals Collection has close to 2,800 current print and microform subscriptions and the library has access to over 122,000 electronic journals. The Periodicals Collection is a non-circulating collection.
Periodicals in the Library have different locations based on year of publication and format.
Periodical subscriptions are ongoing year to year, based on faculty authorization and annual review. All academic departments have a Library representative, as shown in the Libray Liaison list.
If you discover that a core periodical is not available, consider requesting it via the appropriate department using the Library's order request system.
