Serials & Government Documents Department
The CCL Serials & Government Documents Department orders, pays for, receives, catalogs, processes, and binds over one thousand print, electronic, and microform serial titles each year. This department is also responsible for processing the materials received through the United States Federal Depository Library Program.
A serial is an item that comes more than once (serially) and is published on a regular basis. Serials are also known as periodicals, magazines, newspapers, directories, yearbooks, conference proceedings, etc. Serials are intended to publish in perpetuity, but like people, they change and evolve. They're born, they change names, they split up, they come back together, they're related to each other, and they die.
The Serials & Government Documents Department is headed by librarian, Mykie Howard, who may be reached at 606-783-5116.
CCL's serials are all over the library: the 2nd floor west Reading Room (where you will find the current periodicals collection), the newspaper collection, the bound periodical stacks (on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors), in Reference, in the Main Collection, Special Collections, and online. The best way to find the serial you need is to do a "Journal Title" search in our online catalog where you will find all print and online titles.
Or, you may wish to search our A-Z list, which includes all of our online titles.
