The Library of Congress defines serials as, "Print or non-print publications issued in parts, usually bearing issue numbers and/or dates. A serial is expected to continue indefinitely. Serials include magazines, newspapers, annuals (such as reports, yearbooks, and directories), journals, memoirs, proceedings, transactions of societies, and monographic series." At the PHSC library, students can find serials as a hard copy print item located in the library stacks, or on our electronic journal database located on the PHSC Library's webpage

For newspaper and magazine articles online, login to MyPHSC using the web browser Google Chrome, select a course you are enrolled in, look on the left menu navigation tab and select "Electronic Library Resources."  Then you will click on the button that says "Open in New Tab" and it will bring you to our databases where newspapers and magazines can be found..
