I found a journal I'm interested in, but it says LMU Print Holdings. How do I find it?


If you search in the Journals search and you see a record that lists LMU Print Holdings, that means we only own the journal in a physical copy. 

Click on the LMU Print Holdings link to see what volumes we own.

Once you click on the LMU Print Holdings link, you will be taken to the journal record page - in this case, you would be taken to the record for The Economist

The library owns volumes of The Economist in print from 1971, and volumes from 1971 to about two years ago are in the basement. You can see the first few volumes on the front page of the record, and click View Additional Copies or search for an additional volume/copy to see the rest of the volumes.

If you are interested in a volume listed as Basement Storage, click on the Request button above the search box and complete the form with your MyLMU information and status (student or faculty/staff). Basement items will be available at the Circulation Desk in a couple of hours, during full-service hours. Basement journals are usually available for a more limited checkout period than normal books.

After clicking on Latest Issue Received, there will be a list of the journals available on Level 2. As The Economist is published weekly, there is a long list of journals available in the Current Periodicals section.

If you are interested in a volume listed in Current Periodicals, write down the call number of the journal from the record and take it upstairs. In the Current Periodicals shelves (located between the media group study rooms), you will find the most recent issue displayed. Pull up the shelf and older issues are behind that issue.
