Theatre 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 theatre. Don't see the title you're looking for? Check the A-Z Journal List, below as well.

Core Journals

  • Journals 000-571 - 2nd floor
  • Journals 572-999 - 3rd floor
  • Current print journals - First floor in front of Elevator
