A periodical refers to any publication that is issued periodically, such as a magazine, newspaper, or academic journal. A newspaper may be published daily, while a news magazine like Time might come out once a week. Other magazines may be issued every month, and academic journals may be monthly or quarterly (published every three months.)

The library subscribes to many periodicals online and in print. Use the Find Journals list to see if what periodicals we subscribe to.
