Stockholm University Library sought a more cost-effective, efficient way to obtain some of its single-title journal content not covered by existing subscriptions. This led to the Library adopting Get It Now, an innovative article delivery service from CCC.
In addition to the efficiency it brings, Get It Now enhanced Stockholm University Library’s long-standing patron-driven acquisition policy. By opting to utilize the patron-driven unmediated version of Get It Now, if a desired journal article is not available through the Library’s existing subscriptions, Get It Now surfaces through the Library’s link resolver so the patron can request the article.
For the academic year of 2021-2022, Get It Now delivered approximately 900 article PDFs to Stockholm University Library patrons, and most articles were delivered in less than 15 minutes. Plus, Get It Now’s built-in safeguards, customizable for each institution, ensure article requests adhere to the Library’s policies while staying within its content budget.
