Current Popular Periodicals

The library keeps a collection of current popular periodicals for patrons to browse.  This collection is located in the first floor of Honnold next to the Cafe. 

Issues from previous months can be found by lifting up the shelf the current issue is located on.


First Floor Press

The First Floor Press is located on the first floor of Honnold.

Inspired by Dr. Edward Petko's generous loan of a 19th century Columbian press to the Library, Professor Jeff Groves of Harvey Mudd College has partnered with Special Collections to establish the First-Floor Press in Honnold/Mudd Library. Professor Groves’ interest in nineteenth-century printing history led him to take up letterpress printing several years ago; he currently offers a workshop in that topic every semester at the Press. In the printing workshop, students learn the basics of typesetting, printing, and binding, a process that allows them to think practically about the relationship between art and technology.

More information about the First Floor Press can be found here.
