Penrose Library recently began displaying selected general periodicals from countries in which DU students study abroad in the Center for World Languages and Cultures (CWLC). The thirty magazines are from eighteen countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Britain, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Russia, and Spain. The CWLC is located in Sturm Hall, Room 201, and the magazines are displayed around the room. Feel free to visit the Center to browse through and read the magazines.
Penrose began subscribing to general/popular magazines from around the world to provide students with opportunities to read publications from the countries in which they would study before they departed, and, upon their return to DU, to keep current with the country’s news. The magazines, generally published either weekly or monthly, are replaced early each week upon the arrival of new issues.
Once the renovation is finished, the magazines will move back into Penrose Library to the current periodical browsing collection near the new café on the main level.
