Don't Overlook the Print Version

locating

While many journals are online, sometimes the print version is a better option. Print journals include advertisements and photographs or charts for analysis, or they may simply be easier to read.

You can find print journals at Notre Dame in several locations. Use the catalog to find the location and call number for the journal you need.  The most recent issues of journals in Hesburgh Library are housed in the current periodicals area on the first floor; Current journal issues cannot be checked out but photocopiers and scanners are available.

Many older journals are bound into hardcover volumes and kept in the book stacks. Bound volumes can be checked out for two days or you can scan or photocopy the article(s) you need. Some older journal volumes are available only on microfilm.

Clicking on the "Locations" tab will show if the volume you need is available.
