Since 2014  SCLEC  libraries have enjoyed discounts on document delivery service fees from Reprints Desk as a benefit of their membership. To date SCELC  libraries have saved hundreds of thousands, while providing excellent turnaround time for their patrons seeking items not held in the library's collections.​​
Next month, they will be launching a brand new service called Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS).  It will provide access to scholarly content from over 30,000 journals within minutes to seconds. The first of platform of its kind, AGS is a smart, flexible and comprehensive on-demand access solution that enables libraries to:
  • Fill gaps in their existing collection holdings
  • Prioritize the provision of Open Access content
  • Simplify workflows
  • Monitor budget usage
  • Improve patron user experience and access
  • Reduce strain on library budget and resources 
Presented with Wil Weston, Head of Collections and Resources at San Diego State University, attendees will get a preview of Article Galaxy Scholar and how it can work to optimize your existing workflows. During this webinar, SCELC members will get an overview of how AGS expands your existing collection, streamlines article acquisition workflows — both directly and through integrations with systems such as EBSCO Discovery Service, Ex Libris' Alma and Primo, ILLiad, Tipasa and RapidILL, and provides usage insights that allow you to plan ahead, make timely decisions and course-correct quickly.

“We are excited to offer a clean and simple but improved service to offer to our patrons.  They will be excited to about Article Galaxy Scholar because it gives them control over requesting and they can obtain their materials quickly even during off hours”.
                Judea D’Arnaud, UC San Diego

“With Article Galaxy Scholar, Research Solution/Reprints Desk is giving the library community something we have long needed; a reliable and fully customizable content provider that sits between the subscription model and traditional interlibrary loan.  This completely changes how we build and maintain our collections.”
David McCaslin
Library Director, Whittier College
