UKRR service reopening - 21 April 2021
Following the latest government advice regarding safe return to work, the UKRR team are now back site at Boston Spa.
To maintain staff safety and well-being, changes to our workflows and processes may mean our service delivery times are delayed.
We would like to thank all our UKRR friends for their patience.
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.
