About The Periodicals Collection

Located on the third floor of the Sawyer Library, the periodicals collection includes approximately 1,100 publications in various formats. This guide will help you learn to read a catalog record for periodicals, find and use microforms, and get acquainted with the journals, magazines, and newspapers.

What is a Periodical?

Periodicals, also known as serials, journals, and magazines, are publications that are issued on an ongoing basis. Typically, each individual issue of a periodical title has a volume number (abbreviated with v.), an issue number (n. or no.), and a date (for example, in June 2009 the Journal of Accounting Research published v.47 n.3). Most periodicals are published for an indefinite period of time, but they often change titles or cease publication.

Can I Take a Periodical Out of the Library?

No, you may not remove any periodical material from the library. There are photocopiers on each floor of the library that you may use to make copies of any journals, magazines, or newspapers you would like to use outside the library.
