The British Library to Change Licensing for Noncommercial, Non-U.K. Document Delivery
by Barbara Quint
Starting in January 2012, The British Library (BL) will replace its current Overseas Library Privilege Service with the International Non-Commercial Document Supply (INCD) service. The new service stems from a new framework license agreement supported by the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM) and the Publishers Association. It still requires libraries to be authorized, but it also imposes increased compliance documentation on library patrons. End users will have to sign declaration forms before receiving ordered items as well as annual statements of noncommercial status, forms that libraries will have to maintain for 6 years plus current year.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
