Gradual Reopening of the UKRR service.
The British library has begun a phased return to on-site working and we will shortly be able to offer a limited UKRR service. Please do bear with us during this period of transition.
We would like to wish all our UKRR friends our best wishes.
What is UKRR?
The UK Research Reserve (UKRR) preserves the nation’s printed journal collections. Together with the On Demand service, we give quick and easy access for researchers and help libraries make cost-effective decisions.
UKRR allows libraries to de-duplicate their journal holdings and save space.
We check every issue against the national collection and libraries listed on SUNCAT. Two copies of a journal are always retained - an access copy at the British Library and one further preservation copy within the community.
Log into LARCH to submit the journal titles you want to de-duplicate. If you’re a new user, please contact us to register.
