Paper Journals – where have they gone?

Lisa K Flint23 July 2013

Those eagle eyed library users will have noticed that the journal shelves have emptied out over the last week or so. This is because all journals published before 2000 have now been moved to Store. This will include the Biological Sciences journals and Psychology. Medical Sciences are the odd ones out as due to the Cruciform Library moving in there is only the last two years worth of paper journals on the shelves.

To request any books or journals from Store, please use the Store request link which can be found at the bottom of the Explore homepage or follow the link http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/storeform.shtml

Once you have requested the journal, it will be available from UCL Science Library Assistance Desk (Bloomsbury Campus, Malet Place) after 3:00pm the following working day.
