"Which Music Journals Do you have?"

"The Catalog says my Journal is in COMPACT SHELVING. Now what?"

Compact shelving area on STL's Ground Floor

If you discover that your journal issue is in COMPACT SHELVING, it's downstairs on the Ground Floor, in the Compact Shelving section.  You'll need the  call number for the journal in order to find it!

Most items in Compact Shelving are Bound:  This means that an entire year or volume of paper issues is sewn together into a hard cover, to keep things safe and neat.  Just look for the hardcover bound volume or year that you need.


Still not sure how to find it?  First, check out this guide to make sure you copied the call number correctly.  And, of course, ask for help!
