Finding Journals with the Rolodex and Flip Files
While all journal titles and volumes in numbered monographic series in the Mathematics Library
collection may be found in the
Library Online Catalog, the rolodex and flip
file provide easier and more efficient access.
The Rolodex (Map A-9
) is a rotary file of all journal and series titles,
current and inactive, held in the Mathematics Library. The file is arranged by cataloged entry
(title or issuing body). Each card includes call number, title, holdings, location of unbound
issues (in the lower left corner), and the location of bound volumes (in the lower right corner).
The flip file (Map A-10
) lists many of the journals indexed in Mathematical
Reviews from 1970 to date. This file, arranged alphabetically by Mathematical Reviews abbreviation,
includes University of Illinois library call number and location. The Mathematics Library does not
hold all the titles listed in the flip file. The flip file is not entirely current so please check
location in the Online Catalog before going to another campus library to use materials.
