Magazines publish articles on topics of popular interest and current events. The articles are written by journalists and are for the general public.

Magazines, like journals and newspapers, are called periodicals because they are published at regular intervals throughout the year. You can find print magazines at the NCC Libraries, and some are on the Invisible Web.  These electronic magazines can be accessed from home through NCC Libraries' homepage.
