Periodical BooksA Periodical is a serial with a distinctive title usually issued twice a year or more, with each issue containing articles by several people. Journal and magazine are words used for periodicals. A journal is considered more scholarly than a magazine. Newspapers are serials whose chief purpose is to publish news. Other forms of serials are yearbooks, annuals, transactions and proceedings of societies, and/or any series catalogued together.
Periodical Collection On open shelves, periodicals are strictly for room use only but may be taken out for reproduction purposes.
