Brown Library

Periodicals

Brown Library subscribes to 60+ periodical titles in print. This includes magazines, journals, and newspapers. They are located on the top floor of the library.

In order to allow all patrons equal access to them, periodicals have a non-circulating status; this means that they must be read within the library only and cannot be checked out.

If the title you're looking for is not listed, try VCCS Online Journal Search to see if we subscribe to it online.
