  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Finding Articles in Periodicals

In the Otis College Library periodicals (magazines, newspapers, journals) are not all found in the same place. The most recent issues of the periodicals are located in the special display racks straight ahead as you enter the library. Bound periodicals for back issues from 1990 to the present are shelved alphabetically by title on the shelves in the northwest corner of the library. Older bound periodicals are stored in the Annex and must be paged by the Circulation Staff. It will take a few minutes or hours to have the material brought to the Circulation Desk. For a list of Otis subscriptions, click here.

Full-Text Databases

A growing number of back issues of many periodicals are not kept by the library at all, but are still available to you in digital form through the Otis online subscription databases. In addition, there are a growing number of newspapers and magazines to which Otis has never subscribed, but are now available through full-text databases. Full-text articles may or may not include the images and graphs.

How to Locate Periodical Articles

There are several ways to locate periodical articles, but one way is to search periodical indexes. You must first find the citation information - title of magazine, date of publication, and page number. An abstract may be added to the citation. Reading the abstract will assist you in determining whether the article is worth retrieving.

Most are now available online in periodical databases. The Otis Library subscribes to many databases. Access to online databases is available from any computer on campus and from home through the Proxy Server. Your Xnumber and password are required for off-campus access.
