Periodicals include newspapers, popular magazines, and scholarly journals which are published on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semiannually, etc.). The WCSU Libraries currently subscribe to over 800 periodicals. Materials are located on the third floor of the Haas Library, and in the Young Library reading room. All periodicals are shelved in alphabetical order by title. Additional titles are available in full-text via our databases such as Academic Search Premier, ABI/Inform, JSTOR, etc. Visit the Databases section for a complete list.
Periodicals do not circulate, and must be used in the libraries. You are welcome to make photocopies of library periodicals - photocopiers are available on the first and third floors of the Haas Library, and at the Young Library.
Due to space limitations, the Ruth A. Haas Library retains paper issues of daily newspapers only for the most recent two months. Earlier issues may be available on microfilm. Microfilm is held in filing cabinets on the third floor. Microform reader/printer machines are available for making copies of microfilm and microfiche. We encourage users to scan the pages and save to disk to save paper, but printing is also available free of charge. For help in using the reader/printers, please ask in the Serials Office on the third floor. If the Serials Office is closed, you may inquire at the Circulation Desk on the first floor.
To find out if the libraries subscribe to a specific periodical, please check CONSULS, the online public access catalog.
If WCSU does not subscribe to the periodical you need, you may obtain needed material via Interlibrary Loan. Please allow at least ten days for delivery. In most cases, Interlibrary Loan service is free, but if you are in a hurry, faster document delivery service is available for a reasonable fee.
