A periodical is anything that is published periodically such as once a week, once a month, twice a year, etc. We typically think of periodicals as being magazines, newspapers, and journals.
The Library subscribes to a variety of magazines and journals. The current year's subscription is out on display while the previous two years are kept in storage. Ask a library staff member about getting issues that are kept in storage.
Periodicals (magazines, journals, and newspapers) can not be checked out. However, the Library does provide photocopiers and scanners.
The following newspapers are located on the 2nd floor:
Daily Reflector (Greenville)
Martin County Enterprise & Weekly Herald
Rocky Mount Telegram
Standard Laconic (Greene County)
(Ayden, Grifton, Winterville)
Washington Daily News
To find out if the library carries a print subscription to a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper, use the library catalog to perform a periodical title search.
1. Click the PCC Library Catalog link.
2. Type the title of a journal, magazine, or newspaper in the search box.
3. Choose "periodical title" from the drop-down menu.
4. Click the Search button.
If the title you searched is available, you will see a page with information about that particular periodical.
In the example below, the title of the magazine is Ebony. Further down on the page you will see a section that shows what print issues are available. This will usually be expressed as "current year's issues on display; previous 2 years in storage."
