The British Library plans to launch its International Non-Commercial Document Supply (INCD) service, with effect from 1 January 2012. It will initially run for a trial period of two years. The agreement is based on the Publishers’ Association (PA) supported framework agreement recently agreed between the British Library and the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM) and which they recommend to publishers.
