About Online Journals

Periodical Collection

The Princeton Theological Seminary Library is able to purchase some journal titles in digital form, others in print, and some in both digital and print form.

Print Journals


Current issues of print journals are shelved by title. Those with titles beginning with A-J are in the Periodical Reading Room on the first floor of the North Wing. Those with titles beginning with K-Z are on the lower level adjacent to the Iain R. Torrance Atrium.

Bound issues are shelved by call number on the Lower Level. (Call numbers begin with PER for "periodical," another name for journal.)


The library catalog is one place to look up specific journals. Select "Journal Title" as the index to search from the menu on the Simple Search tab.

Note: Journals do not circulate and must not be left overnight in carrels or study rooms.
