Current periodicals represent the most recent issue(s) of a particular journal. These journals must be read in the Library only.
Most journals have several issues to a volume ( a volume usually spans one year's worth of publications of that journal).Therefore, journals that come out monthly will have 12 issues in a volume, whereas journals that come out quarterly will have four issues to a volume, etc.
Once a volume is no longer current, the Library will gather up the issues in that volume and bind them together into a single book.
These are the bound periodicals, which are then placed on the shelves on the 1st floor. The current issues are placed in a holder next to the bound volumes, located on the 1st floor at the south end of the building.
