Current Periodicals
Faculty, staff, and graduate students may check out current periodicals by taking the item to the circulation desk. To see how long you can check out a current periodical, please see For how long can I borrow library items?

Bound Periodicals
The library's bound periodicals are housed in the Library Annex. To get a periodical from the Library Annex, start by searching for the title in the library catalog. Once you find the periodical in the catalog, click on the link that says "Detailed Holdings/Retrieval Requests." Then click on "Request" next to the volume number you need.

You will now see options to have an article scanned, or to have the whole volume delivered to the main library for you to pick up. If you desire to check out the volume, click on that button and enter your username and password. You will get an email when the volume arrives. Please see For how long can I borrow library items? for information on check-out privileges for bound periodical volumes.
