This paper presents a progress report on a project which has been funded by the UK’s Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). Known as EASY (Electronic Article SupplY), it adds an electronic delivery dimension to an existing traditional library loan system.

Key features of the system are the prices set for the articles and the distribution of income. Both publishers and libraries benefit from the system. Libraries pay essentially the same price for an electronically delivered article as they do for normal ILL delivery. And for the first time publishers who are taking part in the project get revenue from each electronic ILL.
