Abstract: This article discusses the process and outcomes of the document delivery (DD) service that has been re-launched in March 2010 at the Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) Library; and illustrates the developments of DD services at international level. Further, it highlishts the need of establishing a proper mechanism of sharing information among the Sri Lankan libraries to go par with the impending E-journal Consortium in order to maximise the usage of materials that would be purchased out of the tax payers’ money. The article also aims at opening a dialog among Sri Lankan librarians on enhancing access to materials for the Sri Lankan users by utilizing technological advancements and following good practices of modern DD services and information sharing platforms through a collaborative approach.
