Library Resources for Classics: Checklists of Classics periodicals

Contents

Introduction

The present checklists, alphabetical listings of full titles (List A) and of title abbreviations (List B), contain key bibliographical, holding and shelving information of periodicals for Classical Studies and related disciplines in the PUL collection.  Each entry of the list has three components:

1) Full title: The full title of each periodical is given, in some cases, including variant title(s), parallel title(s) in another language, or, where applicable, followed by a note to indicate title change.

2) Abbreviated title: Title abbreviations chiefly follow the most recent practices of l'Année philologique. Occasionally, due to common usage, two or more alternative abbreviations are recorded in a single entry. If a journal or series is also available for online access, it is marked Online in the field.

Most periodicals and monographic series in this list are shelved in Firestone and their call numbers are given with no further location designation.  If an item is shelved elsewhere, a location designation is given in brackets immediately after its call number (e.g., N3 .A18 (Marquand Library)).

Volume designations below each call number are the current holdings in the Library; in most cases, these are bound volumes. Recently published issues of a journal are usually shelved, unbound, in the Periodical Reading Room, unless otherwise indicated (e.g., Classics Study Room). For more information on recent issues of a journal, availability of a particular bound volume (i.e., whether it is checked out by a user), please check the online catalog for most current holding/shelving status of the title.

Where applicable, title changes are briefly described in the full title column and in the call number column. In most cases, the call number remains the same.
