Finding magazines in your Library


The University of Sydney Library provides access to a range of Australian and Internationally published magazines, in both print and electronic formats.

To search for and locate magazines, use the Library Catalogue to find individual titles or a list of titles on a subject. Magazines may be referred to as journal titles, periodicals or serials.

For example, to find Australian Women's Weekly, select "Journal Title" from the catalogue drop-down menu, enter the title and click search. Search results retrieve two records for the magazine, indicating it is available in the Library collection in print and digitally through subscription databases.

To search for a genre of magazines relating to a particular subject, select a subject or keyword search from the catalogue drop-down menu and search for the relevant terms. For example, Australian Social Life and Customs Periodicals ; Women's Periodicals, Australian ; Popular culture Periodicals ; Fashion Periodicals etc.
