History

About: Journals

Like newspapers, journals are a form of publication released in serial, or volumes and issues. The articles in academic - or "scholarly" - journals are authored by credible subject experts and often peer reviewed for accuracy before being published.

Use the Journals tab on the Library homepage to search by title / subject, or browse the alphabetical listing. Each journal record includes link(s) to access the journal online or the physical location and Call Number if available in print.
