Reading Magazines Online

As many publishers want libraries to purchase the print copy of a magazine as well as the electronic version, they will often place what is know as an embargo on their publications. This is typically for a period of 60 days, and so you may not see the most recent edition in our catalog. 

Since we may not have the most current issues online, we are linking to search results for each magazine in the catalog. You will have the option to choose the print version, where you will be able to view images and layout as well as the most recent copy, or the electronic version, which you will be able to view from home but will likely be text from less current issues.
