Since September 1991 the British Library Document Supply Centre (BLDSC
) has been acting as a backup to CARL System's UnCover2 service, which provides easy-to-use article ordering and delivery by fax.
A plan recently announced by the two organizations will allow UnCover to "serve as an alerting service to the BLDSC
's collection of more than 55,000 current serial titles." In instances where journal articles are cited in UnCover but are not easily available from UnCover contributing libraries, requests will be referred to the BLDSC
under the terms of the agreement.
