Periodicals Department


The Periodicals Department receives about 1600 current print magazine and journal titles which are arranged on open shelves on the main floor. Back issues are kept on microfilm (also on the main floor), or in bound volumes in the basement. In addition to the 1600 print subscriptions, many other titles are available in full text through our database subscriptions. You may check our online catalog or Serials Solutions for exact holdings and locations of print and full text journal titles.

The Periodicals Librarian can assist patrons in tracking missing periodical issues, locating articles on specific topics, or using any of the equipment in the Periodicals area.

Online Journals

Many of the Library's periodicals are available online and articles may be downloaded, printed, or emailed. If you wish to locate an individual journal title, go to Serials Solutions. You may search for a specific journal, browse titles alphabetically or locate our journal subscriptions by subject. In addition, many full text articles are available in most of the Library's online databases. After finding an interesting citation, look for a link or graphic that says "Article Linker". Article Linker searches all of our online databases to find the journal title, and specific article if is available in full text.

Checking Out Journals

Faculty may check out periodicals for 3 weeks. All other use is restricted to Library use only.

Microform Readers

Microfilm and microfiche readers are located in the Periodicals Department (1st Floor) and Government Documents (3rd Floor) for reading microform formats. Portable microfilm and microfiche readers can be checked out from the Circulation desk. Several of the microfilm and microfiche readers can also be used to print copies of microform documents. You may use Banana Bucks Card or Gorilla Card in most of the microfilm and microfiche reader/printers, but one machine accepts cash. The cost is the same as for photocopying (below).

The Library also has a digitizing microfilm scanner that allows you to transfer images from microfilm or microfiche onto disk. Please ask for assistance in Periodicals or Special Services when using this machine.

Photocopying services

User-operated photocopy machines are located in the basement and on the first and third floors. The cost is ten cents per page if you would like to use cash, or five cents if using a Gorilla One Card or Banana Bucks Card. The Banana Bucks Card may be purchased at the Card Value Center machine located near the Circulation desk. The CVC machine can be used also to add money to either card.
