Today’s time-strapped faculty, students and other scholarly researchers require immediate access to journal articles 24 x 7. The traditional Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowing process, which can take several days or more to fulfill a request, does not always meet this need.
In response, CCC developed Get It Now, which provides patrons and library staff at colleges and universities with instant access to journal articles in a single, easy-to-use application.
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 service integrated into your ILL workflow and/or OpenURL link resolver.
Get It Now was developed in collaboration with The California State University system – one of the largest university systems in the world – and with the innovative IDS Project that originated in New York State.
