WCC Library journals collection

The WCC Library holds about 900 specialized periodicals, among them, 200 current journal titles. The current issues of selected titles areJournals display-Journals displayed at Bossey, whereas back volumes are stored and preserved in WCC Archives. The journal collections are available for consultation on site by appointment. Articles may be ordered as digital copies from WCC Archives either directly by e-mail or via Inter-library loan (ILL Rero) requests. A considerable number of journals are recieved in exchange for WCC edited journals; e.g., The Ecumenical Review, International Review of Mission, and/or Current Dialogue.

As more and more journals are published electronically, the WCC library aims at constantly enhancing its e-journal portfolio, while reducing the number of paying print subscriptions to a minimum, particularly if titles are available electronically free of charge, or via e-journal aggregators and online portals (EBSCO, GlobeTheoLib etc.).
