All our journals are catalogued on SOLO.
Journals are all for use in the Library only. Current issues are displayed on the periodical stand in the Reading Room. Back issues of essays in criticism and Poetry Review may be found in the Literature sequence of the periodicals section in the Lower Library. Back issues of the other titles listed are kept in the cupboards in the Reading Room.
The JournalTOCs Tables of Contents service makes it easy to keep up-to-date with newly published scholarly material by allowing you to find tables of contents for thousands of journal tables. If you sign up for a JournalTOCS account you can receive tables of content from your favourite journals by email or RSS feed.
This 'alerting service' from the British Library provides access to the British Library's Electronic Table of Contents of current journals and conference proceedings. The Zetoc database covers 1993 to date, and is updated daily.
As with JournalTOCS you can search for journal articles and conference proceedings and set up email and RSS feed alerts.
