Periodicals are any published materials that come out periodically, that is on a regular basis, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.
These include newspapers, magazines, trade and professional journals, and scholarly research journals.
The Library subscribes to a variety of print periodicals. Current issues are located in the Library's Periodical Reading Room on the main floor.
The articles in periodicals can be located by searching online Databases that are subscribed to by the Library. Many of these databases include the full-text of articles.
