The Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering & Technology in Kansas
City has a very reliable document delivery service -- they'll find
most articles, and deliver them via mail or (I think) electronically. 
Cost is generally about $20 per article for 2-day delivery, but if you
want rush or super-rush service, it's available at a higher price.

You can see their website here:

and their contact information is:

Phone: 1-800-662-1545
Mail: Document Services; Linda Hall Library; 5109 Cherry; Kansas City, MO. 64110 

Give them a try, and let me know how it works out for you.
