All of the periodical and newspaper holdings owned by the Kalamazoo Public Library are listed in a resource referred to as the Union List of Periodicals. The Adult Services Department is responsible for its compilation. Questions regarding any title in the list should be directed to the agency holding it.

Included are holdings that the Adult Services Department only has on a set of microfilm called “Magazine Collection.” In some cases a title is held for some years in hardcopy and others on the “Magazine Collection.”    


InfoTrac, an online periodical index and full-text database, is also available. Periodical titles that have full-text coverage are indicated with “v.” A list of full text titles is available from Michigan eLibrary.
