Periodicals

Periodicals play a very important part in the academic world because they convey the most recent information. This is vital in keeping abreast with developments in one’s area of specialisation.

We subscribe to academic periodicals pertaining to various fields related to courses offered by the University of Malta. We subscribe to more than 60,000 titles in electronic format, which are accessible 24/7 and some 150 titles in print format. 

Our aim is to facilitate the patrons’ research methodology by teaching them how to locate the relevant information they require for their studies. We excel in providing support on the use of online resources via the Library website.

The Periodicals Department accommodates print journals published after 2005. Journals published before 2005 are located in one of our depositories. If you would like to consult material housed in these depositories, fill in and submit the online request form. The journals will be brought to the Periodicals Department for consultation within two or three days after submission of the request form. Journals cannot be borrowed.
