The periodicals section is one of the busiest in the library, attracting thousands of users daily. Students and scholars use the open-shelf collection of some 5,600 journals from here and abroad to keep current with the latest findings in fields that range from literature and the social sciences to music, economics, and history. Holdings also include 110 newspapers from major U.S. cities and countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
David B. Weigle, Wharton 1969, led his class with generous support of their project, honoring his father, Julian M. Weigle, Wharton 1942. A plaque at the Current Periodicals Service Desk recognizes the Weigle family.
