Periodicals are magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers, and newsletters. They are publications that are published at regular intervals. Daily newspapers, weekly magazines, and quarterly journals are all periodicals.

Both Indian and Foreign journals currently subscribed and journals received as gift are displayed in the shelves in this section. News papers and popular magazines are also available for reading. A journal, on completion of its volume will be processed for binding. After the binding is over, the volume will be accessioned and added to the Back-Volume shelf. Necessary reading tables and chairs are provided for reading and reference in this section.

Many periodicals are written for a general audience whose readers are not expected to have specialized knowledge or training. We usually call these periodicals magazines. However, probably even more periodicals are written for specialists and have articles that are difficult for readers who lack that background. These periodicals, written for a scholarly audience, are called journals.
