You can select to receive up to ten (10) journals from the Journal Loan Scheme list.
When you request a journal, we will add your name to a circulation list for that publication. The circulation list and mailing labels are attached to the inside cover of the journal. The journal is then posted to the first member on the list. When it is your turn to receive the journal, you have one week to read the journal before you post it on to the next member on the list.
