Current Periodicals

Current Periodicals contains the Rivera Library's collection of current magazines and scholarly journals as well as local, national and international newspapers.  


  1. Where can I find the most recent issues?

    Current print issues of journals and magazines (usually the latest 6 months) are shelved alphabetically in the Current Periodicals section on the first floor. For help identifying the difference between a magazine and a scholarly journal, see this page.

Some titles, such as Rolling Stone and Time are received on microfilm and shelved by call number in the Microfilm section in the Basement.
