Through the British Architectural Library, the RIBA aims to collect the world's major architectural journals, whether these are commercial, official or academic publications. Dating back to the mid-19th century, they include full sets of 'Architectural Review', 'The Builder', 'RIBA Journal' and 'Country Life'.

Around 2,000 titles are held as part of the collections of the RIBA, over 600 of which are current journals. Anyone can come and access the collection by visiting the Library, while some are available freely as e-journals.
