Journals are a very good source of information on new theories and developments, writing on emerging artists and designers, latest policies, scientific papers and state-of-the art technology.

Journals are for reference use only - scanners and photocopiers are available in the libraries.

All journals are listed within the library catalogue, but if you want to find out which journals are relevant for your subject area, take a look at the subject pages.




full alphabetical list of all journals held in print form within Penryn and Falmouth Campus Libraries is also available.

If the journal you are looking for is not available from the library, you can use the Inter-Library Loans service to request individual journal articles from elsewhere.

Any requests for new journal subscriptions need to be made via lecturers.

Online Journals 

An increasing number of journals are available online, either as full text or as searchable archives and, where this option is available, there will be a link to it from the journal record on the Library catalogue. You will need to log in to access any electronic subscriptions.
