Library Orientation: Periodicals

Use this guide to learn more about Lightner Library and the services and resources that we offer.


Lightner Library has access to hundreds of magazines, journals, and newspapers in print or on microfilm in the library.  Current issues of periodicals may be found in one of three areas:  main floor across from the Reference Collection, behind the Circulation Desk, or in the lower level.  Bound periodicals are also located in the lower level.  If you are not sure where a current issue is located or are having trouble finding the periodical you need, check with one of the reference librarians.

The library has access to even more magazines, journals and newspapers in our online databases.  Users have access to these resources 24/7.  For more information on using our online databases, check out the Find an Article tab on this guide.
