British Government Publications

British Government Publications are kept in a separate collection on Floor 2 of the J. B. Priestley Library. A small collection is also held at the Management Library.

From 2000, holdings are listed in the Library catalogue but not all pre-2000 publications are comprehensively listed though work continues to add them to the catalogue. As a bibliographical guide to government publishing, the Library subscribes to the United Kingdom Official Publications (UKOP) online database. UKOP is a web service which provides quick and easy access to information about TSO/HMSO publications from 1980 to date and can be searched by subject. (NB UKOP is currently only available on campus.)

The Library currently receives most TSO/HMSO Non Parliamentary publications in print. Departmental publications are obtained on request. The Library also holds some House of Commons Parliamentary publications on microfiche.

Many recent government publications are available online. Sets of older documents have also been digitised.
