UKRR service suspended - 6 January 2021
Following the latest government advice and to keep everyone safe, the UKRR team are currently not on site at Boston Spa. Therefore, the UKRR service is paused while we continue to investigate the implications of the Government’s requirements and when the service may resume.
In the meantime we can accept all enquires and deal with them remotely, so please continue to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you prefer, contact the UKRR Team Manager directly.
We would like to all our UKRR friends our best wishes.
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. The UKRR team, based at the British Library site at Boston Spa, check the availability of every issue offered against the national collection by searching library holdings listed on Jisc Library Hub to make sure that 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.
