Fulfill Patron Requests for Articles in Minutes

What: Webcast: Get It Now
When: Tuesday, 22 March 2022
3:00 PM EDT, 12:00 PM PDT
Where: Online (via Zoom)

Providing your patrons with the articles they need when they need them is vital. Traditional ILL borrowing doesn’t always meet the needs of today’s faculty, students, and other scholarly researchers who require immediate access to journal articles and are working around the clock both on campus and remotely.

Get It Now from CCC complements your ILL services by providing library patrons with immediate fulfillment of full-text articles from unsubscribed journals—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With Get It Now, patrons quickly get the content they need to effectively learn, instruct, and conduct research.

For this session, we’ll be joined by Kristen Fredericksen, University Collaborative Systems Librarian with The City University of New York (CUNY) and former Coordinator, Information Processing at The Catholic University of America. Kristen will share her experience with evaluating, implementing, and managing Get It Now.

More than 500 colleges and universities use Get It Now to expand their virtual collection and provide articles to patrons that fall outside of library subscriptions. With more than 19,000 journals and tens of millions of articles, Get It Now helps you expand your virtual collection, enabling you to provide articles to patrons from journals that fall outside of your subscriptions.

Don’t miss our one-hour presentation on how Get It Now can complement your ILL services and help you deliver greater value to patrons while giving you the control you need to stay within your library’s budget.
