The use of electronic journals in a document delivery service

Author:

Andrew Braid

Abstract

The reasons for using electronic journals in a document delivery service are discussed. The history of use of electronic journals in the British Library's (BL) document delivery services are described from Adonis starting in 1988 to the Electronic Storage and Retrieval System (ESTAR), which was implemented in May 1999. The link between the BL's Inside service and ESTAR which permits Inside users instant electronic document delivery (EDD) of requested articles is also described. Finally, the publisher stance relating to EDD and why the BL adopted a solution involving secure EDD using Adobe eBook Reader software are examined.
