Current Issues

The latest issues of newspapers, magazines, and journals are displayed near the windows on the first floor, and may be browsed and read during library hours. Newspapers are on rods and magazines are held in protective jackets.

Back Issues

Paper copies of previous issues of periodicals are shelved behind the Circulation Counter. Back issues may be requested at the Circulation Counter with a Magazine Request form and a UH ID card. Please note that magazines and newspapers do not circulate. Photocopier machines are available on the first floor of the library to make copies of articles.

The library often has up to five years of back issues of a magazine. The HCC Periodicals List below provides the years of coverage for each of our magazine subscriptions. The library's magazines and journals may also be identified by searching the Hawaii Voyager online catalog. Search for "Journal Title".

Magazine reading area


Back issues of some magazines and newspapers are available on microfilm. Again, the HCC Periodicals List will show which periodical backfiles are available in this format.

The library has microfilm for both the Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin back to 1929. Selected issues of the New York Times are also available. Microform reader/printer machines are located on the first floor. Copies may be printed for 10 cents per page.


Many articles from newspapers, magazines, and journals are available online in full-text through the library's subscription databases.
