Temporary restriction of the UKRR service due to Covid-19 outbreak:
In line with Government recommendations relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, both British Library sites are closed to both staff and visitors - this includes the UKRR team based at Boston Spa.
We would like to wish all our UKRR friends our best wishes during this challenging time.
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.
