The NULJ renewal process takes place each autumn and is an opportunity to update your library details and the list of journal titles you are willing to share.
Member libraries are emailed in October and asked to update their details by early December. We recognise that libraries often make decisions about their subscriptions for the coming year in the autumn, so we ask for a snapshot of your intentions at that time. Uncertainty about future holdings shouldn't delay your NULJ renewal. Amendments to the database can be made throughout the year.
What you should do in November and December:
To ensure a smooth renewal process:
Submitting journal holdings information:
Please include as many titles from your collection as you are able to. This helps to ensure NULJ is as useful as possible. You must include a minimum of 10 journal titles and you should have at least 3 years holdings for each title. We would appreciated libraries including unique or specialist titles not currently available within the NULJ as this will add to the diversification of the database. If you wish to include all or most of your library journal holdings, this will be welcomed.
Only add in the notes field what you want to be visible in the database e.g. PDF available.
Please enter journal titles in the following format:
Contact us if you have any questions about your NULJ renewal, quoting your NULJ code.
From 2019 there is a new pricing structure for NULJ. The cost of membership will be based on how many journal titles each service offers, so the more titles offered, the less you pay. We will not be able to accept membership applications from services which offer fewer than 10 journal titles. For more information on the new pricing structure, including the costs, please see our helpsheet.
