Journals for your subject
See your subject guide for information on the journals available for your subject, both in the library and online.
Journals – also known as periodicals or serials – are specialist publications that are published regularly. Some are weekly, others less frequent. They are an excellent resource for your studies because they contain up-to-date information and reports of current research for your subject. They generally contain more recent information than books do, and will be much more focussed on specific areas that are too specialised for books to cover. To find out whether a journal is available in the Drill Hall Library, check our catalogue.
We subscribe to several hundred journal titles. Journals in the Drill Hall Library are held in the Group Study Zone, arranged by broad subject area.
Most journals are available online – through your university, you will have access to thousands of different journal titles, far more than we have space for on our shelves. To find out how to access these, see electronic resources.
