We accept academic print journals, in a robust and stable condition, suitable for continued use.
For further details about the suitability of materials, please consult the UKRR handbook.The British Library will ensure all materials meet our collection management policies.
We do not accept:
- Leisure Journals
- Newspapers (due to their specialist preservation needs)
- Teaching materials
UKRR cannot accept the submission of contaminated material. Any material submitted should be in a condition suitable for continued use. However, a copy which has suffered wear and tear is better than no copy at all. If you are unsure about the condition of your material, please contact us.
If you have print journals that you would like to offer for disposal, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
*Investigations are ongoing regarding the potential for extending UKRR into low use monographs. For more information see the reports below:
