PRR/Italian, Portuguese & Hispanic Reading Room: project update

As agreed by the Library, Modern Languages CoLP and the Sub-Faculties, preparatory work on establishing the new Italian, Portuguese & Hispanic Reading Room has begun.

During the summer, space will be created for the relevant reference works by moving journals according to the agreed selection criteria, including electronic availability of issues. In the first instance, print runs of journals which are entirely available in electronic form and those with continuous older runs will be moved to the Book Storage Facility (Closed Stack).

Updated information about the project will be published via Library notices, our website ( and the Modern Languages Weekly Roundup throughout the summer. An online guide giving details of new journal locations and links to online issues will be created.
