You can use the Library Catalog to get an approximate idea of the items that we hold in print as opposed to electronically. Remember that in some cases we have the same items in both formats.

Start at the IUP Libraries website at  Enter a keyword, for example "education", in the Search our Collections box.  Use the Search In drop down menu to choose Library Catalog.  Click Search.

On the right side of the results page, use the facets to limit your results.  Under Resource Type, choose Available in the Library and under Format choose Journals.

You will see a list of items which should all have the location Serials Department listed in addition to any electronic access we might provide.  The Serials Department is located on the Ground Floor of Stapleton.  Ask at the Serials Help Desk for assistance pulling these journals.
