IPSWICH, Mass. — March 21, 2019 — A new partnership between Reprints Desk, Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Research Solutions, Inc., and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) now enhances the research experience for academic and government users of EBSCO Discovery Service™ (EDS). Reprints Desk’s award-winning Article Galaxy solution has been integrated with the EDS platform to streamline the discovery-to-delivery user journey for mutual customers.
The Article Galaxy Scholar Collection powered by Reprints Desk provides on-demand access to full-text PDF content for scientific, technical and medical journal articles that a library may not already subscribe to. The Article Galaxy academic service offers an easy mechanism for rapid article delivery to libraries in academic institutions and government organizations, supplementing interlibrary loan workflows and institutional subscriptions. Article Galaxy seamlessly integrates with EDS by complementing their linking technology and EBSCO’s Full Text Finder™ to help deliver PDFs to library patrons on-demand, for subscribing institutions, so they can access the content they need quickly and easily. With the new partnership, users of the EDS will benefit from access to articles from 40,000 journals and chapters from 400,000 books and native PDF documents, delivered within minutes, at any time.
Scott Ahlberg, Chief Operations Officer at Reprints Desk, says that the integration with EBSCO Discovery Service reinforces Reprints Desk’s dedication to improving the product and partnering with the best resources available. “We’re committed to offering unsurpassed on-demand solutions. This new integration with EBSCO will provide libraries the ability to satisfy end-users with the broadest range of content possible.”
According to EBSCO Information Services Senior Vice President of Product Management Tim Lull, the ability to offer an on-demand document delivery solution helps to support content workflow and the user journey. “EBSCO helps library users and faculty access content to complete their research journey. The integration with Reprints Desk provides a better solution for our customers in their discovery and research process.”
