The 6th level periodicals area is a quiet study area.

Maag Library provides access to thousands of periodicals online, in print, or microform.

The periodical collections include, but are not limited to:

  • Bound journals and current issues, located on the 6th floor, are arranged by subject and shelved by Library of Congress (LC) call numbers. This simplifies the process of finding journals as all issues of a title will be together.
  • Some older bound journals stored in NE Regional Depository.
  • Periodicals in the Maag Microform Center.
  • Many OhioLINK research databases,  such as JSTOR: an electronic journal archive, and professional journals in the  Electronic Journal Center.
  • Current newspapers are available on the Main floor (Reference Room) in the Maag News Corner arranged in alphabetical order by title.
  • Newspaper Resources at Maag Library

To look for a particular journal,  search MaagNET or the Maag Journal Finder

Note most recent issues in white boxes

On 6, recent issues are in white boxes next to their bound older ones.

Finding Current periodicals

Periodicals may be in print, microform, or online. Maag Library has approximately 951 current print periodical subscriptions ranging from popular titles such as The New Yorker and Sports Illustrated, to scholarly works such as JAMA and the Journal of American History.

Most Maag periodicals, both current and bound–are on the 6th floor organized on the shelf by the Library of Congress Call Number. Consult MaagNET to find the call numbers. For example, the most recent issue of Newsweek is located on the 6th floor on shelf 1A with the call number AP2.N6772. The Library’s holdings statement says Maag owns paper copies back to 1951, but some are located at the regional depository.
Nearly 100 microform subscriptions such as GQ and Vogue are located in the Microform Center.
