Need a particular title? Check the library catalog

The U-M Library collects recent issues (usually the last few months) of some papers in print. Older issues are kept on microfilm, viewable using digital scanners. Visit Serials and Microforms (Room 203) in the Hatcher Graduate Library for both print and microfilm. 

Use Library Catalog Search to look up a particular title, and see what we have, regardless of format:

Do a "journal/serial name" search for the name of the periodical

What if UM doesn't have what you need?
