This paper aims to review the current LIS literature for document supply, resource sharing and other issues such as open access (OA) that have an impact upon the service.


The approach is based on the scanning of about 150 journals, reports, websites and blogs.


Lorcan Dempsey from OCLC looks into the future. Patron-driven acquisition and pay per view continue to receive much attention. There is considerable debate on the development of OA as the pace increases; of particular interest is Schöpfel on the impact of OA on document supply.


This is the only regular literature review that focuses on interlending and document supply and related issues.
