Steps to get print magazines in Merced College Library

The Merced College Library subscribes to over 100 different magazines and newspapers in print.

I would suggest you browse through PARENTS magazine for ideas on creating meals for children.

Many of our databases, such as OmniFile and MasterFile, and Primary Search, contain articles on cooking for children.

You will need your student ID card to see the magazines. They stay in the library.
