"Periodicals" are publications that come out on a regular schedule (magazines, journals, newspapers).

You should be aware that the ACC Library subscribes to many online periodical indexes, i.e., databases, that are restricted to use by ACC students and employees. If used from off-campus you must log in using your ACCeID.

For background information on using periodicals, look at the study guide Finding Periodical Articles.
