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. For most of these, the current year's issues are out on display while a limited number of previous years are kept in storage. Ask a library staff member about getting issues that are kept in storage.
The following newspapers are located on the 2nd floor:
Print periodicals cannot be checked out. However, the Library does provide a photocopier and several scanners. Ask a staff member for assistance if needed.
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.
Step 1: Open the PCC Library Catalog. A link that opens a new window is listed below.
Step 2: Type the title of a journal, magazine, or newspaper in the search box.
Step 3: Choose Periodical Title from the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Click the Search button.
If the title you searched is available, you will get a page with information about that particular periodical, such as the title, publisher, and location.
There should be a section on the page that lists what issues are available. This will usually be expressed as "current year's issues on display; previous 2 years in storage."
