Accessing Periodicals at UT Libraries
In addition to the periodical resources available in the Libraries' databases, UT Libraries' holdings include many periodicals, both in print and on microform.
A One Search search on the Libraries' homepage will indicate the location of the resource -- library stacks or storage. If the location for an item is Library Storage, you may request a reading room appointment in Hoskins Library, a library pick-up, or an article scan.
When UT Libraries doesn't own a resource you need, you may request it through Resource Sharing, which will attempt to borrow it from another library. Allow plenty of time for your request to be fulfilled.
