Journals and articles in print

The University Libraries have current and back issues of several Classical Studies journals in print. You can find them using OneSearch's advanced search feature.

To find back issues of these journals, search for the word "classical" as a subject term and use the "content type" filter to choose "journal/ejournal." On the left side of the results page, click "library location" and choose "bound periodicals." Back issues of journals are shelved alphabetically (by journal title) on Bracken Library's second floor. 

Recent printed issues of a few Classical Studies journals are available in the Current Periodicals collection on Bracken's first floor. These can also be found via OneSearch's advanced search, by choosing "current periodicals" on the results page.
