You see in the PDF (which also opens by clicking on the image) which periods we have from which journal or (book) series. For this please click in the graphical room plan (first page of PDF) on a specific shelf. The link takes you to the page with the inventory information of the specific shelf, which correspond to the shelf's inventory information on each shelf within the library itself.
