Much of academic reading and writing focuses on Academic Journals, those meaty, peer-reviewed periodicals that disseminate serious scholarship. John Tyler’s Library provides these through our online indexes called databases. The library also subscribes to some journals and newspapers in hard copy at both campuses.

All work and no fun reading make Jane a dull girl, right? The library also has popular titles available in the library–and the comfortable chairs to go with them. These cover many areas of interest, from fashion to sports to art.

Check out some of the titles on this page or go directly to this PDF (you will need Adobe Acrobat).

Each campus has its own collection. Favorites include:

  • Consumer Reports
  • Psychology Today
  • Rolling Stone
  • Sports Illustrated
  • Vogue
  • Washington Post (Sunday only)
  • Wired

Current issues are available for reading in the library, and back issues maybe be checked out for one week. Why buy it in the supermarket checkout when you can get it in the library for free?
