From The Bookseller:
Elsevier and Taylor & Francis have both signed agreements with the British Library which aim to improve the speed of delivery of documents to non-commercial readers abroad.
The agreement requires end-users and not-for-profit libraries to monitor whether articles are being used commercially or non-commercially, with the articles supplied under the new agreement purely being for private study or non-commercial research purposes.
The framework agreed by the publishers and the British Library has been backed by the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers; the Publishers Association; and the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers. PA director Graham Taylor said: “The framework licence agreed with the British Library offers a balanced model for well-regulated licensed document delivery across international borders for non-commercial use.”
