2Heinrichs, I.: Dokumentliefersysteme für die Literaturversorgung : Vergleich des Dienstleistungsspektrums und der Nutzungsbedingungen.
In: Nachrichten für Dokumentation. 47(1996) H.3, S.159-170.
Abstract: Die Arbeit vergleicht die 3 Dokumentliefersysteme RAPDOC, JASON sowie das in den USA entwickelte UnCover hinsichtlich ihrer Dienstleistungsspektren und Nutzungsbedingungen. Gegenübergestellt werden dabei fachliche Abdeckung, Umfang und Qualität der verfügbaren Daten, Nutzerkreis sowie Zugangs- und Recherchebedingungen. Weiterhin werden der Ablauf von Dokumentbestellungen und die unterschiedlichen Preisstrukturen dargestellt. Ein abschließender Vergleich verdeutlicht, daß die zwischen den 3 Systemen bestehenden Unterschiede vor allem darin liegen, daß jeder Dienst mit einer speziellen Zielsetzung aund für einen anderen Nutzerkreis konzipiert wurde

6Casale, M.: Document delivery : the electronic challenge.
In: Library manager. 1995, no.5, S.22,24.
Abstract: The document delivery scene in the UK is still dominated by the British Library Document Supply Service (BLDSC), but its near monopoly is now being challenged by electronic based services such as Blackwell's UnCover and ADONIS. The latter uses CD-ROMs to offer the full page images of over 600 titles from 50 publishers. Economic considerations are likely to be the prime influence on the future development of document delivery services. Canvasses the views of a number of UK academic and special libraries on the topic

In: Online. 19(1995) no.3, S.52-54,56-58,60.

8Reich, M.: Document delivery-services.
In: Cogito. 11(1995) H.4, S.11-14.
Abstract: Für den Nutzer ist es ärgerlich: innerhalb von wenigen Minuten können die in Datenbanken recherchierten, für seine Fragestellung relevanten Literaturhinweise nachgewiesen wewrden; die Beschaffung derselben über den deutschen Leihverkehr aber aber durchschnittlich 18 Tage. Wen wundert es da noch, daß (nach einer Untersuchung der UB Konstanz) über 40% der jährlich etwa 2,5 Millionen bestellten Kopien erst gar nicht abgeholt werden? Neue Document delivery-Dienste könnten helfen, das Ärgernis zu beseitigen

10Schmidt, K.A. ; Holt, J.: CARL UnCover2 or FaxonFinder? : a comparison of articles and journals in CARL UnCover2 and FaxonFinder.
In: Library resources and technical services. 39(1995) no.3, S.221-228.
Abstract: FaxonFinder and UnCover2 are well known US-based online searching and document delivery systems currently available and competing for users. On the surface they appear to be more or less the same. To test this assumption, 7 subjects in various disciplines were searched in each system and then compared from the point of view of journal and article overlap. For the 7 disciplines the average overlap in journal articles was 33,6%. The startling lack of overlap revealed in the results of this preliminary study suggest that both of these systems cover different ground, and that a standard and general purpose database system has yet to emerge

13Rowley, J.: Revolution in current awareness services.
In: Journal of librarianship and information science. 26(1994) no.1, S.7-14.
Abstract: Reviews the marketplace for existing current awareness services and uses the main features of these products as standards against which to access 3 new current awareness services: Inside Information; SwetScan; and UnCover. Inside Information, from the British Library Document Supply Centre, provides a short listing of the key features of each article in the world's principal scholarly periodicals. Each reference contains a maximum of 1.500 characters and approximately 1 million references are added to the database each year. SwetScan, from Swets Subscription Service covers 7.000 periodical titles and provides title, ISSN, year-volume, some article names, authors, page numbers, and, if the library is a Swets subscriber, the library's subscription number. An avergae of 111.073 references are added to the database each month. UnCover is a collaborative venture between Blackwells and CARL and offers access to a multidisciplinary database based on the holdings of the participating libraries. UnCover differs from the other 2 services in that it was not originally marketed as a current awarenenss service. UnCover covers 14.000 periodicals representing the holdings of participating libraries together with additional titles for which Blackwells act as subscription agents. The main focus of UnCover is speed of document delivery and the intention is to provide a fax of a document within 24 hours or less (and within the hour if the document is stored on optical disc). Concludes that, if these 3 services are successful and lead to wider availability and use of current awareness services in the academic community, this will have a significant impact on libraries and their relationships with end users

15Stebelman, S.: Analysis of retrieval performance in four cross-disciplinary databases : Article1st, Faxon Finder, UnCover, and a locally mounted database.
In: College and research libraries. 55(1994) no.6, S.562-567.
Abstract: As an increasing number of cross disciplinary databases become accessible over the Internet, librarians are presented with the dilemma of which to choose to support user research. Several factors, such as cost, retrospective coverage, and document delivery, are usually considered in making a decision. However, one key factor: citation retrieval performance is often overlooked because comparative data has been unavailable. A study of 4 cross disciplinary databases was undertaken to provide those data. The databases consulted were: Article1st; UnCover; Faxon Finder; and GENL (a database comprised of 6 locally mounted Wilson databases: Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature; Business Periodicals Index; Humanities Index; Social Sciences Index; General Science Index; and Index to Legal Periodical Literature). In addition to citation frequency distribution, 2 other variables were examined; percentage of unique periodicals cited per search and relevance of citations to stated search topic. Presents an analysis of the data with its implications for database selection

19Beckett, C. ; Blackwell, B.H.: Document delivery : the UnCover experience.
In: Information networking 93: using the network. Proceedings of the 1st Annual Conference on Information Networking, London, May 1993. London : Meckler, 1993. S.80-82.
Abstract: UnCover is an online current awareness and document delivery service, located in Denver, CO and containing 4 million articles from over 13.000 interdisciplinary periodicals. UnCover is accessed by librarians over the Internet and similar networks such as the UK's JANET and Australia's AARNET. Users can search the database, identifying articles of interest, and request their delivery within 24 hours by facsimile transmission. Searching is by author, article keyword, or periodical title. Specific issues of a periodical can be retrieved and the articles appearing in that issue can be listed on screen, effectively recreating the contents pages. Unlike traditional abstracting and indexing service databases, UnCover is an up to date source of information and users do not have to wait 3-6 months for the article citation to appear in the database
