About This Guide

Welcome to our Research Guide featuring the Periodicals available in the Goldstein Library. Navigate through the menu on the left side of this page to explore publications related to Ringling majors available at the library. 


Demonstrating how to lift periodical shelves to access previous issues.

Periodicals include magazines and journals. Current issues are shelved  alphabetically in the East corner of the 3rd Floor on a section of white shelves. Lift the movable shelves for the unbound back issues of each title. 

Annuals are publications that are printed only once a year. These Annuals are shelved alphabetically by title together with the bound periodicals in the section of green shelves on the 3rd Floor.

Archived titles are publications that we used to subscribe to that no longer exist or no longer receive in print. These periodicals are shelved alphabetically by title in the bound periodicals in the section of green shelves on the 3rd Floor.

*Please note: As of Fall 2021, some unbound periodicals will be located in the bound periodicals shelves. Please refer to a librarian for assistance if you have trouble locating these materials.
