Dear Colleagues,

In Interlending & Document Supply 2003;31(1)the ILL Terms and Conditions
Group searched for publisher volunteers.

I'm curious to hear if you have met any responses yet from the publisher
side. Other results are of course also of interest.

As you all now, the British Library, CISTI and NLM now are offering secure
electronic desktop delivery. British Library have succeded in offering
Library Privilege Copy delivery within UK and Ireland without extra
copyright fees, but SED is offered foreign customers only when rather high
copyright fees are paid for commercial users http://www.bl.uk/sed like as
when orders are sent to CISTI
http://cisti-icist.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/docdel/about_sdd_e.shtml or MedPilot in
Germany, http://www.medpilot.de).

Are there any other smaller (or larger) libraries that have been able to
include electronic document delivery in their licence agreements for
electronic subscriptions? In the Swedish National agreements there are
only a few exceptions that allow anything else then printouts for mailing
to non-commercial users. Commercial users and private persons that have
been among our tradional document requesters earlier have to be served in
other ways now, which is not only more expensive and time consuming. It is
also getting less use of university funding when research results are more
difficult to share depending of restrictions regarding copyright and use.

In a project trying to find out if secure electronic document/desktop
delivery (SED, SDD or EED) directly from electronic sources would be
possible with publisher agreements, with or without extra copyright fees
paid, I and others have been in touch with Ingenta�, Elsevier, Springer
and Thieme without results so far. The project have been carried out at
the Karolinska Instutetet University Library with support from BIBSAM; the
Royal Library�s Department for National Co-ordination and Development. The
Royal Library in Stockholm is the Swedish National Library. The result so
far will shortly be published. I would really much appreciate your
opinions, suggestions or information regarding this matter. Maybe you also
have further information of projects not covered or identified yet?

Many good thoughts and also facts can be found in the following two
publications: Daniel Chudnov, �Opinion paper: docster - instant document
delivery� which was published in Interlending & Document Supply; Volume 29
No. 1; 2001, pp 23-27. More facts can be found in the article �Model
licences and interlibrary loan/document delivery from electronic
resources� by Janet Brennan Croft in Interlending & Document Supply;
Volume 29 No. 4; 2001, pp 165-168. A very good paper was also presented
and published by Lynn Wiley (member in your group) at the 8th IFLA ILL
Conference 2003: http://www.nla.gov.au/ilds/abstracts/licensetodeny.htm

The project EASY (Electronic Article SupplY), a co-operation between
Lancaster University and Ingenta and others went on during two years with
support from JISC. In June 2002 the project was finished and an evaluation
was carried out for JISC by professor Peter Brophy at LIMC Ltd.  At least
three important things can be learned from this project: � The publishers
gets incomes by electronic article delivery where they not would have got
any share if the delivery was fulfilled by traditional interlibrary loan
between libraries. � Libraries get better possibilities to reduce work
efforts in interlibrary loan activities and get lower costs. � Users get
faster article delivery and better quality and can if the prefer choose to
store their articles electronically.

The evaluation showed that it takes time to carry out new ideas, but
during the end of 2001 the number of participating publishers were 18
offering around 1000 journal titles. By the end of the project the number
of participating libraries were six and the amount of requests were quite
low which also might be the reason for that the project did not continue.

In Germany the service MedPilot was launched during the autumn of 2002.
Deutsche Zentralbibliothek der Medizin (ZBMed) in Cologne in co-operation
with DIMDI and the publishers Thieme, Springer and Kluwer offers ordering
and direct electronic article delivery after searches in several databases
at the internet address: http://www.medpilot.de. The system is based on
the software SISIS-Elektra. Article delivery for users that not already
have access in Germany to titles requested is offered for a charge between
EUR 7,20 and EUR 37.

All the best wishes for a successful and happy new year!

I'm looking forward to hearing from you
