University Publications Collections
The University Archives houses a wide range of publications produced by Brandeis University and members of the Brandeis community. The Publications Collections include the University Periodicals Collection, the Institutional Publications Collection, and the Alumni Publications Collection.
University Periodicals Collection
This collection contains periodicals published by University departments and offices, and student organizations. Most of the periodicals are published weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Major periodicals include The Justice, The Brandeis Reporter, The Brandeis Review, and Imprint.
A complete listing of periodicals is available along with descriptive and holdings information for each title.
Unfortunately, many of these periodicals are missing back issues. If you have old issues of Brandeis periodicals that you would be interested in donating to the University Archives, please call us at (781) 736-4686.
Institutional Publications Collection
This collection includes a wide range of publications produced by, for, or about the University or its faculty. Notable examples include the University Bulletin, the yearbook, the course bulletin, the student handbook, and the campus directory. This collection also includes monographs about the University, such as From the Beginning.
Most of the titles in this collection can be found in the Libraries' on-line catalog, OneSearch. Many titles can be found by entering the term "Brandeis University" in a subject, keyword, or author search. Please contact the University Archives to verify titles in our collection.
Alumni Publications Collection
This collection includes publications authored by undergraduate and graduate Brandeis alumni. These publications can be found in the Libraries' on-line catalog, OneSearch, and are searchable by title, author, keyword, or subject. Enter "Brandeis University Alumni Publications" in an author or keyword search in OneSearch for a listing of all publications in this collection. To see publications by alumni of a particular class, enter "Brandeis University. Class of [year]" in a subject or keyword search in LOUIS.
