What Is A "Periodical"?

The word "periodical" refers to a publication that continues to be published, usually on a regular basis, in multiple issues under the same title, such as a magazine, journal, or newspaper.

Access to Periodical Articles

Articles from almost nineteen thousand periodicals are available in full text via NC LIVE, and many others from A to Z Online Resources Guide.  Print periodicals do not circulate; articles may be copied using the photocopier in the lobby.

Periodicals as Information Sources for Research

Information from magazines, journals, and newspapers can be useful for researching events and topics. See The Information Cycle1 for a perspective on the time factor.

The Library subscribes to some print periodicals for the use of the college community. However, if you are doing research, it is probably much more efficient and effective to search for articles on your subject in the databases provided by the library--via on-campus computers, and off-campus computers via 
Passwords. See A to Z Online Resources Guide.
