There are two options for reading National Geographic.

The library has a print subscription. Current issue and the past six months issues are located in the "Journals" section on Level 1 of Coe Library. The call number of the magazine is G1 .N27.

Older issues from the past ten years are kept in the "Bound Journals" section on Level 1 of Coe Library (located farther back in the building past the "Journals"). The call number is G1 .N27.

Issues older that ten years are available at the Library Annex, which is located on the west end of the campus under the biological and physical sciences buildings. The call number is G1 .N27.

Digital issues of National Geographic magazine are available using the "National Geographic Virtual Library." This link is to the library catalog entry for that item:

Another option for digital viewing is the rbDigital (formerly known as Zinio) database. This database provides the National Geographic magazine and that publisher's "kids" and "travelers" versions of their magazines. Access is available to both UW patrons and Wyoming public library patrons through a joint venture between UW Libraries and the Wyoming State Libraries.This link is to the database:
