HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
The launch follows HEFCE's announcement in July of nearly £10 million to support the five-year programme following the successful completion of a pilot phase.
UKRR is a collection strategy for low-use print journals, collaboratively stored and managed across higher education institutions and the British Library. In the long term, the programme will release up to 100 kilometres of shelf space, saving the sector up to £29 million in capital funds.
