I have had an article about SINTO published (with Gilly Pearce as co-author) in the latest issue of Interlending & Document Supply, Vol. 35 No 4, 2007 p192-194.
In this article I outline the history of the development of SINTO from the Scheme for the Interchange of Technical Publications set up in 1933, through the Sheffield Interchange Organisation; and its merger with BLISS to form the Sheffield Information Organisation. I then look at trends in document delivery and the future of the SINTO ILL service.
I point out that SINTO now provides a wide range of service to its member organisations and that the demand for local document delivery is declining. However this service is still valued and SINTO will continue to provide this service as long as it is needed.
