Leeds University Library

Finding departmental publications


The Library only has a selection of publications for this period. They are mainly shelved outside of the Official Publications section and incorporated into the regular stock.

1969 to present

Since 1969 the Library has subscribed to virtually all publications from Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO, now known as the Stationery Office or TSO). All of these publications appear in Search@Library.

The Official Publications section also contains a substantial number of publications published directly by departments (ie not via TSO). Check the item record linked in Search@Library for full details and locations.

Post-1969 departmental publications are mainly kept together in the Official Publications section in the Edward Boyle Library on level 8. They are arranged alphabetically by issuing department.

Within each departmental section the arrangement is the same. Individual titles come first in a "Miscellaneous" sequence arranged alphabetically by title, followed by journals and series publications.

Publications of departments no longer in existence are held on level 8 of the Edward Boyle Library. They all have the shelf mark "Stack Official Publications British..."
