We are delighted to announce that the London Library has just been added to SUNCAT, making this our fifth new Contributing Library of 2014. Just under 2,500 of its serial records has just been loaded into our service. This addition brings the total number of contributing libraries to 97, plus the CONSER database, the ISSN register and the Directory of Open Access Journals.

The London Library was founded in 1841, and is the UK’s leading literary institution. With more than one million books and periodicals in over 50 languages, the collection includes works from the 16th century to the latest publications. Membership is open to everyone.

Since its foundation the Library has collected and bound academic journals and publications of a remarkable range of learned societies both in the UK and abroad. Additionally a wide range of periodicals of cultural, social and political interest are taken, with the current collection exceeding 750 titles and extensive back runs for over 2500 further titles many of which began in the 18th century. As well as print copies the Library subscribes to over 200 online versions of its journals, augmented with access to the online periodicals archive JSTOR (offering access to over 1000 titles).
