If you need current information, periodicals are your best sources. Periodicals are publications that are published on a regular, recurring basis, e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly. In other words, periodicals refer to anything that is published at specific intervals of time. Periodicals include newspapers, magazines, and journals.
The types of periodicals you will most likely use for a course like ENG 24 are newspapers and magazines.
The library currently subscribes to several print newspapers including the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Pacific Business News, and USA-Today. Newspapers can be found in the Current Periodicals Display area.
Magazines often contain colorful photos, illustrations, and advertisements on the front cover and throughout the publication. Magazine articles cover topics ranging from current events, politics, and popular culture and are written in language appropriate for the general reader.
Examples of current print magazines in our collection are Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, and Honolulu.
Current issues are kept at our Current Periodicals Display and are placed in protective red plastic covers. Older issues are filed in alphabetical order by title on nearby shelving. All periodicals are for library-use only.
