American Religions Collection Serials
The ARC Serials Database contains information on over 2,000 serials (magazines, newsletters, newspapers and the like) in the American Religions Collection. This database is continually updated with new acquisitions as they are acquired and processed.
You can search for ARC serials by title, publisher, religious family or date. Results can be displayed and sorted by title, family or publisher or date. However, the date field is often not an effective way to search or sort this database. Words are automatically truncated, so searching for Methodis with return Methodism, Methodist and Methodists. Boolean operators do not work within a field, but can be used between fields by selecting the and/or radio button.
Serials can be used by bringing the number to the Special Collections service desk. Most serials must be paged from the library's offsite storage facility, however, serials can usually be paged in less than 24 hours.
For assistance in searching this database or locating research materials, please contact Special Collections staff.
