The Periodicals Department, located on the main level of the library, is responsible for ordering, cataloging, processing, and preserving print & electronic journals, magazines, and newspapers. We subscribe to over 500 current print periodicals, and maintain access to over 80,000 e-journals.
Microform reader-printers are available in the Periodicals Department, including an all-digital microform scanner that provides PDF scans in addition to other output options.
Offsite storage houses most periodicals published prior to 2011 and the majority of our microform holdings. Items in offsite storage may be requested at the Periodicals Service desk or online using the Offsite Periodicals Request Form. Requests should be made 24 hours in advance, and will be available for pick-up at the Circulation Desk.
Staff are available to help you identify and locate periodicals. We invite your suggestions for purchases, ways to improve services, and questions regarding periodicals. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the Periodicals Service desk, via phone at (254)968-9867, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
