The Serials Department at Bailey Library is responsible for managing the periodicals collection, which consist of scholarly journals, popular magazines, and newspapers in various formats, including print, electronic, and microform.

Print Periodicals

Bailey Library subscribes to over 400 current print periodicals. The current print journals are located in the back corner of the first floor. In addition, the Library has a range of past print journals bound and located on the third floor. All periodicals in both locations are in alphabetical order.

Electronic Periodicals

Bailey Library offers access to over 20,000 e-journals. E-journals can be accessed via web links in our online catalog. Each e-journal record will provide a date range specifying what is available.


Bailey Library’s microform collection consists of a wide array of journal, newspaper, and primary source materials. Microform includes both microfilm reels and microfiche cards. There are microfilm and microfiche readers available for viewing documents. Materials may be requested for duplication by filling out a request form (PDF)located next to the readers. Requested pages are sent to your SRU e-mail account, generally within 24-hours.
