This survey describes the history, costs and recent developments of various means of interlibrary communication. Extensive references are provided for each area. The communications systems discussed are: surveys, mail, telephone, facsimile, television and radio, and computers. The network concept is also considered. A discussion of the future of interlibrary communications covers the human element (users of the system), computer potential and communications links. (SG)
