Periodicals at the Libraries:

With plenty of room to relax and study, the 5th floor of Meader Library contains all the Periodicals for the downtown campus. Magazines, journals and newspapers are available in print, electronic formats, microfiche and microfilm (microform). This floor has the perfect combination of leisure books, such as the top-selling classics and poetry, as well as helpful educational texts on Science, Medicine, Agriculture, Technology, Military Science and many other informative subjects.

Print periodicals are shelved alphabetically by title in open stacks at both Atherton and Meader Libraries. Microform periodicals are located in microform cabinets near the microform reader-printers at Meader Library. Access to our subscribed periodicals online is available through HPU Pipeline via the Libraries' tab -- look for the Periodicals List link in the left-hand column.

A meditation room is available to all students upon request. There are multiple computers to use and print from during all open hours. Please feel free to ask us any questions.

Periodicals at the Libraries hold a large collection of DVD’s, VHS’s, CD’s and BLU-ray Discs for you to use at the Library or check out and take home with you for an entire week.
