How Do I Locate Journals in Lovejoy Library?

Current paper

  • Located on the 2 nd floor (individual "unbound issues" are in red plastic boxes).
  • Arranged alphabetically by title of journal.

Bound journal

  • Located on the 2 nd floor.
  • Older "back issues" of journals are bound together as a book (containing all issues for one volume or year).
  • Arranged alphabetically by title of journal.
  • Most pre-1980 holdings have been moved to the Library's remote storage facility (click here for a retrieval request form).

Microfilm or Microfiche

  • Located on the 2 nd floor in the Microforms area.
  • Assistance is available for retrieving, viewing, scanning, and printing articles.

How much does it cost to make copies from electronic, print, or microform journals?

  • Cost is $.10 per page using a SIUE ID ($.50 per page for color copies).
  • Value can be added to a SIUE ID card using the station on the 1 st floor of Lovejoy Library or in the Service Center in Rendleman Hall.
  • Coins can also be used in some printers and photocopiers.

What if I need to determine the available formats for a journal?

  • Instructions are available for locating journals in print or microform (using Our Library Catalog) and electronic (using SFX) formats.
  • If the Library does not own or provide access to the journal in any format, use ILLiad to request the specific article through Interlibrary Loan (may take up to three weeks to receive material).
