Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to reflect on developments in document supply and scholarly communications and to look into the future of the service.

Design/methodology/approach

This study provides an informal overview.

Findings

The results of this study indicate that Interlending and Document Supply (ILDS) as a service has a long future ahead of it albeit at a lower level than in the recent past.

Originality/value

As a farewell to ILDS, it is inevitably original; its value will be judged by the reader.

Abstract

The Budapest Open Access Initiative has sparked a new round of papers and news items on open access initiatives. Their growth approaches critical mass and all players, including paid for document delivery agents, need to look to their laurels. Copyright remains an old perennial, but more so at present with the implementation date for the new EU directive approaching. Heads must come out of the sand at last if libraries are to apply the new rules efficiently. Other issues that are prominent in the literature this quarter will come as no surprise to readers – electronic journals and site licensing, resource sharing and full text retrospective conversion. At last there is more and better systematic attention being paid to the end user and ILDS will reflect and develop this welcome move.
