What is Periodical Locator?

Periodical Locator is our official list of all journals, magazines, and newspapers available through JMU Libraries. It includes our print and microform holdings as well as our online (electronic) holdings. For online holdings, it includes titles purchased as a subscription (where we pay for each issue) and titles included within aggregator databases (where we pay for the database that happens to include online articles). It selectively includes free online periodicals.

It generally excludes yearbooks and other book series that are published on a regular basis.
