The Library is closed for renovation and will reopen on Tuesday 30 August. All our periodical archives are currently in storage. In September 2016, a portion of the archives – our most historically important and most-often consulted titles – will return to the Library. Once reinstalled, these issues may be consulted by members, or by any visitor with a day pass. Our on-site archives will include such titles as: Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Harper’s Weekly, The Paris Review, The New Yorker, Story, Life, Ebony, Art in America, and many others. When we reopen, we request you make an appointment in advance so we may reserve one of our conference rooms and pull the necessary items prior to your scheduled visit.
A significant portion of our periodical archives are now housed in the CTLes (Centre Technique du Livre de l’Enseignement Supérieur) repository. To read more about our new partnership with CTLes, please see the March 2016 issue of Ex Libris. To page a specific issue and make a consultation appointment, please email a librarian.

Visit their respective websites for a full listing of journals: JSTOR Browse by Title and EBSCO MasterFILE Premier Magazines and Journals (online PDF document).
