Print Journals

Print journals are arranged by call number on the 2nd floor of the Downtown Campus Library.  Current issues are on display on the White Hall side of the building in the Bennett Reading Area.  They are shelved by call number.

At the Evansdale and Health Sciences Libraries, the journals are inter-shelved with the books by call number.  The borrowing web page provides information on how long journals can be checked out.
