The Periodicals Department is located on the fourth floor of the Library and houses a collection of 1,600 titles. Some of these titles as well as many others are available in full text format in one of the Library's Online Databases and it is recommended that users search the databases for full text content. To check if a particular journal title is available in a database follow this link, Full-Text Journals by Titles (via Serials Solutions) on the Library’s home page.

The print and microform collections of the Periodicals Department are accessible during regular Library hours. When requesting articles, the Periodicals Staff will ask you to fill out a call slip listing the Title of the Journal, Volume and Author of the article you are seeking. Bring print-outs of your index searches to the desk. It is strongly recommended that you request specific article(s) with a full citation when you come to the Periodicals Desk. Research, i.e., looking for journal articles, should be done with the help of a Reference Librarian on the third floor or with the help of the Periodicals Librarian on the fourth floor.

Upon request, the Periodicals Department will send LIU faculty members regular alerts of the table of contents of a specified journal or journals.

The Inter Library Loan (ILL) Department is located on the opposite side of the Periodicals Desk inside the Reading Room. When you are unable to retrieve articles through the Library's Subscription Databases and the Periodicals Department, please complete the Journal Request Form via the InterLibrary Loan Department and the requested material will be sent on your behalf to the Brooklyn Campus Library. You may also complete the Book Request Form for books not owned by the Library. The ILL staff will call you when the material is available.
