The current year’s issues of all the print journals received by the library are located on the Main Level, near the coffee shop. The most recent issue is found on top of the shelf, and all of the previous issues for the current year can be found underneath the current issue by lifting the shelf. Issues older than a year can be found on the Lower Level on the shelves with green ends. They are filed in alphabetical order. Still can’t find it? Ask a librarian.
