Bodleian Library Record Journal
Published by the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford
Aims and scope
The Bodleian Library Record (BLR) is the journal of the Bodleian Libraries. First published in 1914 (as The Bodleian Library Quarterly), it fulfils two roles, serving both as a scholarly journal for articles based on research in the Bodleian's collections and those of other Oxford libraries, and as a record of significant developments in the Library. It is published twice a year. All submitted articles are subject to peer-review.
The BLR is committed to the publication of research which enhances scholarship and extends understanding of the collections, raising issues of interest to bibliophiles, librarians and Friends of the Bodleian, and those Sir Thomas Bodley called the 'Republic of the Learned'. It also includes short articles on acquisitions to the Bodleian Library collections and reviews of its exhibitions and publications.
All scholars working on material in Oxford library collections and seeking publication of articles or shorter pieces based on their research are encouraged to contact the editor.
