A research guide for students in the History of Experimental Film

Finding Currently Received Print Art and Photo Periodicals in the Library

You can find these currently received periodicals on the 3rd floor shelved alphabetically by title on the metal shelves to the left of Reserve, Periodicals & Media desk or some are in the Wittliff Collections. You just need to ask the staff in the Wittliff Collections to get the magazine or journal that you want to look at and they will get it for you. Some are not current anymore but just check the links.

Click on the links to see the location of the current periodical, 3rd floor or Wittliff. You can use the call numbers on the linked catalog record if you want to look at an issue of one of these titles that is older that the past 1 or 2 years. You can find those in the stacks at the call number listed, on the 3rd floor, back to 1960. If the year of the issue you want is older than 1960, it will be where the call number listed is usually found in the library on the 5th, 6th, or 7th floors.
