It seems to me, just like most article requests, this should be done via Interlibrary Loan, rather than just asking for it through medlib-l. I'm not objecting to ILL requests on the listserv - that's been discussed many times. What concerns me is freely sending off a pdf, perhaps without checking the license agreement. > >Yes, Joan's article is very worth reading, but let's keep in mind the processes we have in place for requesting articles - and the reasoning behind these processes. > >Janet >Janet Cowen, MSLS, AHIP | Director of Library Services | Maine Medical Center | >22 Bramhall St | Portland ME 04102 | [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> | 207-662-4079 > > >CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This email message, including any attachments, is for the use of the intended recipient(s) only and may contain information that is privileged, confidential, and prohibited from unauthorized disclosure under applicable law.
