Would you like to keep current with the publications in your field, but can’t make it to the library to browse the journals? 

Sign up for the library’s Table of Contents service!

Library staff will scan the Table of Contents of journals related to your subject area that we subscribe to and email them directly to you.  If you see an article that you would like to read, we’ll scan it and send it to you.  Want to read the whole issue?  We’ll check it out to you.

Go to: http://www.genesee.edu/library/find-articles/print-periodicals/ to see a full list of the library's print periodicals.  Contact Cindy Hagelberger (Ext. 6231) and let her know which periodicals you'd like to review.  Each time a new issue of a selected journal arrives at the library, we’ll send the Table of Contents to you.
