Alternative Serials in the Tamiment Library: Periodical Guides

A guide to finding and using alternative serials collections in the Tamiment Library, a special collection at Bobst Library focusing on Labor and the Left.

Periodical Guides

Following is a selected list of periodical guides that are particularly useful for research in the Tamiment Library's subject areas. These volumes are available on the reference shelves in the Tamiment Library's reading room unless otherwise noted.

Research Tip:  Use the guides listed below to identify serials with a specific angle, focus, or political perspective published during the time period you are studying.  Once you have identified promising newspapers or journal titles, search for them in BobCat.  If they do not appear in BobCat, consult our lists of uncataloged periodicals.  If the titles you are looking for are newspapers published between 1965 and 1980, see if they are included in the Underground Press Collection on microfilm.  If you still can't find them, try a search in WorldCat.  You may be able to borrow serials on microfilm from other institutions via Interlibrary Loan or request specific articles via ILL.
