Find the Publications You Need

Periodicals are current and back issues of journals, magazines, newspapers, microforms and indexes. Looking for a particular one? We can help!

The ODU library has access to 10,000+ electronic periodicals and many of our print subscriptions include electronic access as well.

Our periodicals in print are primarily located on the top floor of Spangler Learning Center and are arranged alphabetically by title, with each title then arranged chronologically by volume or year starting with the earliest.
