    • Recently-published physical periodicals are kept onsite in the library. 
    • Older issues are bound together and kept offsite; request using the library catalog.
  • Additional electronic and print periodicals can be accessed at Consortium Libraries (NYU, Cooper Union, New York School of Interior Design).
