Yes. Digital back issues of magazines, journals and newspapers are available through our library databases, and we keep back issues for most of our print magazine and journal subscriptions. 

To see availability for a periodical title, go to the library website, and search the library catalog for the title of the periodical. 

Most back issues of print periodicals are kept offsite and can be requested from the library catalog. You can learn how to request print periodicals by watching this short video tutorial. If only an article is needed, you can request a black & white scan through the library catalog. Print periodicals cannot be borrowed, but they can be scanned, photocopied or photographed for academic use under Fair Use guidelines.

  1. That link seems to be dead. And even when corrected (minus the period) the actually Serials database doesn't work either. Is there updated information here?
