  • Periodicals in the Maag Microform Center.
  • Many OhioLINK research databases,  such as JSTOR: an electronic journal archive, and professional journals in the  Electronic Journal Center.
  • Current newspapers are available on the Main floor (Reference Room) in the Maag News Corner arranged in alphabetical order by title.

Finding Current periodicals

Periodicals may be in print, microform, or online. Maag Library has approximately 951 current print periodical subscriptions ranging from popular titles such as The New Yorker and Sports Illustrated, to scholarly works such as JAMA and the Journal of American History.

Most Maag periodicals, both current and bound–are on the 6th floor organized on the shelf by the Library of Congress Call Number. Consult MaagNET to find the call numbers. For example, the most recent issue of Newsweek is located on the 6th floor on shelf 1A with the call number AP2.N6772. The Library’s holdings statement says Maag owns paper copies back to 1951, but some are located at the regional depository.
Nearly 100 microform subscriptions such as GQ and Vogue are located in the Microform Center on Maag"s Third Level.

Ash and Smoke cast photos

Now Available at Maag Library!

A joint effort of YSU’s Maag Library, History Department and the Department of Media & Academic Computing, this one hour documentary was broadcast by Public Television’s  Western Reserve Public Media  during the 2011-12 season and was rebroadcast in 2013. Here is a preview.

This Jambar article  discussed the creation of the program. It was featured at the Youngstown Area 2012 Jewish Film Festival   Dr. Saul Friedman taught at YSU from 1969 to 2006 and was founder of our Holocaust Studies program. In addition to a dozen books, he created 13 documentaries of which 5 received regional Emmy Awards.   He  died March 31, 2013.

According to the records of the Greek government, 56,500 Jewish citizens lived in the city of Salonika on the eve of the Holocaust.   By December 1944 only three remained.  This is their story–and by extension–it is the story of the Jews of Greece.

 Ash and /Smoke  may be borrowed from the Maag Library AudioVisual Collection, Call number  DVD 0432. 

It will appear online in the Maag archives in the future.
