How to request a print journal

Print journals are held in a closed store outside of the Headington library. To view a print journal that we hold at Headington, you will need to fill out this form and Library staff will fetch the journal for you. Please use a separate form for each journal issue or article you request. If you want a journal that Oxford Brookes Library does not hold please use the interlibrary loan service.

Please note: a selection of current journals are held in the room next to the Welcome Desk on level 1 of the Headington library. These journals are accessible at any time, although they may not be taken out of the library.
