Periodicals Department

The Ruth Schwartz Reading Room/Periodicals Department is located on the ground floor of Giovatto Library.

In addition to housing the periodicals collection of the main library of the Metropolitan Campus, the Ruth Schwartz Reading room offers a service desk and an informal study and research environment where quiet conversation and study groups are encouraged.

While over 20,000 periodical titles are available through the FDU Online Library, a print collection of scholarly journals across the disciplines, as well as magazines and newspapers, is available for browsing, and the magazines may generally be checked out for one week.

If you need an article that is not part of the FDU collection, interlibrary loan service is always available for FDU students, faculty, and staff, in person in the Periodicals Department, or online through the FDU library web page.

Computer workstations, color photocopiers, microfilm reader-printers, a color laser printer, a scanner, a fax, and wireless access are available for use by library users.
