Note 1: Meaning of “Source” codes

  • Ebsco: purchased through our periodicals vendor (Ebsco), and comes regularly based on frequency
  • Direct: purchased directly from source, and comes regularly based on frequency
  • Gift: donated by patron or organization, and therefore may be sporadic or often missing
  • Zinio: purchased through our online periodicals vendor (Zinio), and comes regularly based on frequency

Note 2: Holdings

  • Unless specifically specified as “microfiche” or “microfilm,” the periodicals listed are available in print format. Microfiche and microfilm are kept in the Reference area on the Lower Level. In addition, many of these titles are also available electronically, through the Library’s database subscriptions.
  • “Current only” means we keep as far back as we have room for, so actual collection will depend on whether the title is published, weekly, Monthly, etc.
  • Electronic versions vary based on time of subscription

Note 3: Location

  • Unless specifically specified as “MacKay Branch,” the periodicals listed are available in the Main Branch. If copies exist in both, then one will be listed as “Main Branch” and one will be listed as “MacKay Branch.”
