Examines the current state of interlending and document delivery from a UK perspective. In particular, focuses on four trends that have recently gained momentum and come to the fore – international interlending, resource discovery, online access to full text and the problem of monographs, and unmediated requesting. Reports on developments in these areas and the way one area will influence another. Document delivery is widening in scope and meshing with serials and acquisitions in an electronic environment, while traditional ILL is focusing on more problematical areas. Also looks at how the activities of the British Library are shaping events.
