Did you know that the Main Library has a collection of print periodicals on the main level?  This collection, housed in the Front Porch Café, was created to showcase magazines and journals that are especially popular (in English and foreign languages), visual, or entertaining; in other words, those that are best enjoyed in print.  Examples include Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture, Professional Photographer, and Wired.

We encourage you to stop by and browse these periodicals in person, but you can review a list of them online as well.  To do this, search the word “periodicals” in the library catalog keyword search box on the main library webpage:

and, then, on the results page, limit location to “Browser Periodicals” and then sort by title:
