The library does not currently subscribe to any print periodicals, though we do retain some back issues in print. The library stopped subscribing to print versions during the pandemic, though some issues may still arrive as the print subscription expires or we may display preview copies from titles we did not subscribe to. Each campus had a dedicated area for the print periodicals they subscribed to before the COVID pandemic, but access to physical print format may be limited going forward. The library locations may also have stacks of free newspapers at times from local publications, which are free for you to take. 

To browse our physical periodicals in our library collection, you can search the library catalog off the library homepage for the title to see what we hold/own. Sometimes, limiting to the periodical type after doing a search will help you find a result for it in the catalog, which will then show you the databases which hold coverage for that tile. You can also type in the search bar without an Advanced Search "ti:(periodical title)" and then limit on the left sidebar to the periodical type needed. Further limiting to a specific campus in that same sidebar will show you results available at each campus.

The physical, paper format issues of subscription periodicals are available for in-library use and usually are shelved in a specific section at each campus Library. Please ask Library staff if you need additional assistance locating the current periodicals section or finding a periodical.  A range of back issues may also be available.

Many of the records will have an "access journal" button to allow browsing and searching of full-text articles online. But, if the catalog says it is only available in print, you must use the methods above. 

If you know the article title you need from the journal held only in print, you can place a copy request for it using this form. It will be scanned in and sent through the interlibrary loan/document delivery system.
