Journalism Library

General Collections

Journalism Library has transferred collections to ReCAP since July 2007.  Collections include mainly printed monographs published since 1990.  All phases of transfer involve dumb barcodes.  It has one CLIO location assigned for off-site collections:

  • off,jou : general collection of circulating monographs and serials (circ)

Journalism Library collections correspond to a single customer code:

  • CU : allow delivery to all CUL and ReCAP partner libraries

On the annual (estimated) ReCAP quotas, Journalism is not issued an annual allocation.

Other Notes

  • Customer code CJ is used for direct delivery to Journalism Library in room 204A of the Journalism building
  • Recent publication date has been linked to high request rate
