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.
The Library has recently acquired a variety of resources from the Secchia Institute of Culinary Education’s library – which was previously located within the ATC. Some of the new titles include subscriptions to several culinary arts magazines and journals, all of these are listed below. Many of them look as delicious as their titles sound, with vibrant photos of meals and drinks, as well as a wealth of information related to culinary arts retained within their pages – they are definitely worth a look!
Each title has issues available for viewing, shelved within the Periodicals area, located on the second floor of the Library. You can also click on the titles below to be directed to the library catalog, RaiderSearch, to view which issues are available. Come in and browse new (and old) titles today!
On a consistent basis the library goes through the process of “weeding” – meaning we clear out physical items or cancel online items that not being utilized in order to retain the most up useful resources for students, staff and faculty here at GRCC. To balance out the decisions to drop titles, we are also continuously placing orders for new resources that will support the curriculum and benefit student studies.
The lists below identify magazine and journal titles which the library has recently, or will be discontinuing subscription to in the near future due to a variety of reasons. You can also click on each title to be directed to the library catalog, if you are interested in seeing what issues are available in print and/or through online access.
