What is a circulating serial?

Is this the same as a periodical? Where do I find one?

Circulating Serials are shelved throughout the library along with books and usually DO check out.

Circulating serials include publications expected to continue publishing (usually on an annual basis) like the Guiness Book of World Records, Peterson's Graduate Programs, NCAA National Collegiate Championships Records, The Official Museum directory & Peterson's Graduate Programs, etc.

NOTE: Print journals, newspapers,etc. located in the Periodicals Room on Level 2, DO NOT check out, 

If you have questions about whether a publication is a circulating serial which does check out or a periodical which does not check out, the location in the library is a good clue.  If the title is housed in the Periodicals Room on Level 2, it will not check out.
