Periodicals – that “library” word for a title which is published at different intervals – daily, weekly, monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, annually, etc. The word “periodicals” is often used interchangeably with magazines or journals or newspapers, which actually denote different periodical tools for different audiences.
At GRCC, your instructor will often assign you to read periodicals of one kind or another, depending on the class, the assignment, and/or to introduce you to the peer-reviewed professional literature in your chosen field. Take a look at the periodicals in your field by viewing the [Periodicals] tab on your department’s [Subject Guide]. And, if you want to know more about periodicals in general, see the [Periodicals Subject Guide].
GRCC’s Library has about 400 current print subscriptions to periodicals shelved on the Library’s second floor – but, as you can imagine – we have over 40,000 online subscriptions! Use [eJournal List] to determine which periodicals we get online, and which database they can be found. Use your last name and 7-digit Raider number to access eJournals from off-campus.
