The Atlantic for News, Literature, and Opinion

The Atlantic for News, Literature, and Opinion

Professors sometimes recommend highly-respected magazines as worthy sources, even though they're not exactly scholarly. One of these is The Atlantic (formerly, The Atlantic Monthly), founded in 1857. One notable fact from its early history is that it has abolitionist roots; for example, it was the first to publish pieces by abolitionist Julia Ward Howe. 

Today, The Atlantic is relied upon for its thoughtful and indepth writing on politics, business, foreign affairs, culture and the arts, technology, and science. It is published 10 times per year.

How to get access? The library subscribes to The Atlantic Magazine Archive (1857-2014), and we also provide online access up to the current issue through several of our online databases, like EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete and MasterFILE Complete. We also continue to subscribe to The Atlantic in print, considering its importance and popularity. You will find the current issue on display in our 3rd floor periodicals area and bound volumes on the 4th floor at call number AP2 .A81.
