Higher Education partnerships


The Library’s HE Team have been working with colleagues in the higher education sector to develop a strategic plan linked to anticipated research needs.

A key project is the UK Research Reserve, a partnership that will create a shared national resource, and result in opportunity savings for the sector.

Working with the British Library, Imperial College is leading five university research libraries in the pilot phase – Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Southampton and St Andrews. Duplicate copies of important but lower-use research journals are being
identified. Material not already held by the document supply service is being transferred to the British Library. This amounts so far to less than 3% of the journals in question.
