Fulfill Patron Requests for Full-Text Articles in Minutes
Get It Now complements your interlibrary loan (ILL) services by providing library patrons with the immediate fulfillment of full-text articles from unsubscribed journals — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — through a cost-effective and easy-to-use service integrated into your ILL workflow and/or OpenURL link resolver.
By implementing Get It Now, you can:
- Deliver timely access to content – Get It Now delivers high-quality, full-text, color PDFs of unsubscribed journal articles to patrons around-the-clock.
- Increase operational efficiencies – Traditional ILL borrowing often results in unnecessary expenses and wasted effort when articles arrive long after patrons need them. Get It Now ensures content is available to patrons when they need it, saving libraries time and money and improving patron satisfaction.
- Control how the service is accessed – Get It Now can be configured in two ways: the mediated option enables you to control the usage of Get It Now from behind the library desk while the unmediated version enables you to make the service available to patrons on your library’s website. And with the Get It Now Dashboard, your library staff can easily manage and track Get It Now purchase data, configure your settings, and generate real-time usage reports to ensure you stay within budget.
- Streamline your ordering and invoicing process – Get It Now fulfills article requests through a single, centralized service. You’ll automatically receive monthly or semi-monthly invoicing, or – with the mediated version – you can pay for purchases using your OCLC IFM account.
