CARL, the local library systems vendor which also operates the UnCover program for access to journal articles, has announced that they are in discussion with the British Library Document Supply Centre (BLDSC) to create a comprehensive document delivery service for U.S. libraries. While UnCover includes 10,500 unique titles (approximately 2 million articles) , the BLDSC collection includes more than 200,000 journal titles and more than 300,000 proceedings. Requests which could not be satisfied from UnCover contributing libraries would be referred to the BLDSC. The finalization of the agreement may take until the end of the year.
