The online version of the journal is published on behalf of the Bibliographical Society by Oxford University Press, which maintains a free electronic Table of Contents, pages of recent volumes as well as an electronic full-text archive for subscribers and members of the Society.

The whole of the back issues of the journal from 1889 onwards have been digitised by Oxford University Press. These are available behind a pay wall.
