Serials Subscriptions

New journal subscriptions

All requests for new serial (journal) subscriptions must be collaboratively agreed with colleagues in your School or discipline. This collaboration is facilitated by your Library Liaison Officer, with the collective decision communicated back to Lisa Russell, Library Officer (eResources Data and Licensing) by the Library Liaison Officer (LLO).

The annual serials review provides an opportunity for Schools and disciplines to recommend cancellation of existing subscriptions, and subscriptions to new serial titles. The Library's Collection Development Committee reviews all requests for additional new titles in light of existing and recurring funding.

An online-only subscription will be purchased, unless a sound argument is made for the retention of print, or, no electronic version is available.

Orders or enquiries regarding new serials should be directed to Lisa Russell, Library Officer (eResources Data and Licensing).

  • Title of the Journal.
  • Volume number and issue number of the missing volume or issue.
  • Date of the missing volume or issue.
  • Date on which you noticed that it was missing.
