nice find

Having checked out the British Library and found that whilst I could search through their catelogues, I'd have to pay £18 in copyright fees per paper plus the £8 fee that the British Library charges to make ends meet, it's no wonder that research is left to the universities and large corporate institutes.

But having just done a quick search into available online free papers I've found Scirus. It appears to allow you to search through all of the publicly available repositories of research papers and provides a comprehensive list of its sources. It leads to the Cornell University library archive which allows RSS feeds on a subject matter basis amongst others of freely available publications related to those subjects. Not bad...
