The quantity of Briggs Library’s journal collection may not be as visible as many of its other collections due to the fact that more than 30,000 of the subscriptions are online versus the 300 plus current print subscriptions that are available for browsing in the library. While the library has single subscriptions for specific academic and scholarly journals, many are available through the numerous full text databases for which the library maintains subscriptions. To check for access for a particular title, go to Pounce and search by the title. Pounce provides information on both print and electronic titles and provides a link to the full-text articles within the journal title. Use E-Journal Finder for information on titles only available in online format.
The current issues for print subscriptions are shelved near the DVD and Video collections on the main floor of the library. Back issues for both current and past subscriptions are located near the reference collection, also on the main floor of the library. Both the current and the back issues are shelved in alphabetical order by title.
