Literature LibGuide: Journals

Why should I use this Journals page?

Journals (also sometimes called magazines, or periodicals) are published in issues several times a year, and contain articles. Maybe you already have a citation? Or maybe your professor gave you a specific journal title to investigate? The library has many journals, ones you can physically read, or ones that you can access online. Below are some suggestions for journals about literature. Don't see the title you're looking for? Check the A-Z Journal List, below as well.

A-Z Journal List

Click here to access the A-Z Journal List. The link will take you to the "browse" page, but you can also click the ssearch tab to look for a specific title.

Core Journals

Please note, the library does not necessarily own every issue of a journal.  Please check either the A-Z list or WorldCat Discovery for exact holdings. "Current" means we receive the latest issues, either in print or in full-text online. Print journals are located in the library either on the second or third floors:

  • Journals 000-571 - 2nd floor
  • Journals 572-999 - 3rd floor
  • Current print journals - 2nd floor, by the front windows
