We do not charge for document delivery and do not expect to do so.  We
have been mandated to cancel journals due to budget problems, so we
expect that document delivery will increase.  For us, it is cheaper to
provide ILL than to pay for large numbers of expensive subscriptions.

Subject: dds spending

Our library has been offering free document delivery service so far.
Since the demand is increasing. we are trying of ways to control
and spending.
What are other libraries doing ?
Free DDS to all ? Free to faculty only ? How to put a ceiling for
and spending, by department ?
by faculty member ? by student ?

Are libraries charging a fee for DDS? a flat fee by request ? real cost
for each request ?

We are studying all options and badly need you kind input

Many thanks
