What's in the Perch?

Welcome to The Perch

We are excited to announce the opening of a reimagined space on the first floor of the Main Library, just across from the new books section.

Called "The Perch," the new space features a curated collection of current literary journals and magazines of news, commentary, and opinion. The area is open and available to all patrons, but we are especially excited about the possibilities this space holds for supporting the process-based and creative research needs of students. 

In the meantime, if you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please be in touch with cathy-cranston@uiowa.edu or katie-hassman@uiowa.edu, or you can also submit them here. Submit your request to schedule a class session or event in The Perch using our online request form. 

This guide will show you which titles are available in The Perch. Previous issues for many of these titles are located on the 3rd floor of the Main Library, on the east side.

Many people were responsible for creating this area. Their many contributions and hours of work are appreciated deeply. Thank you to them all!
