Magazines in the Library

In Faith Lutheran College Library we have a variety of Magazines and Periodicals in our catalogue for student research. However, these resources can often be overlooked as they don’t show up in a ‘Catalogue Search‘ and their content changes from issue to issue. Below is a list and brief summary of our Periodicals:

It is subtitled “the science of everything” and is described as “a magazine of ideas, science, society and the future”.
