Popular Magazine Titles and Locations

Here are some sample titles of popular magazines, including their locations within the library, in storage, or online. 

  • Please note that not all magazines have been digitized, or have only been partially digitized, so you may need to look at the physical copies of the magazine, in paper or on microfiche or microfilm. Also note that the paper copies may be fragile and issues may be missing. If digital editions are available, links are in blue. Nearly all microfilm is now in storage. You must use Sooner Xpress to retrieve microforms from storage.
  • The database Readers' Guide Retrospective indexes several of these magazines, if you want to look up a topic rather than browse an issue.
  • If the click "here" links below don't work, please search Discover Local (the catalog) by the title of the magazine.
