BLC Vendor Webinar: Article Galaxy from Reprints Desk -- Your Collection Development Safety Net

Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Training

BLC members libraries can save on document delivery charges on scholarly content from over 40,000 journals and chapters from over 500,000 books with the Article Galaxy Academic Collection. With an on-demand document solution, your library can fill the gaps in your existing collection holdings and ILL needs.  During this webinar, you will get an overview of special copyright royalty rates and a demonstration of how our service streamlines article acquisition workflows both directly and through integrations with systems such as EBSCO, Ex Libris, ILLiad, and RapidILL. 

Together with Jennifer Carroll, Collection Management Librarian at the University of New Hampshire, we’re also providing a preview of the soon to be released Article Galaxy Scholar. This platform is the first of its kind library solution that brings together: making open access article discovery more visible, improving end user experience, and helping universities better forecast and make budgeting decisions based on comprehensive and cross-publisher usage data, all while incorporating the benefits you already get from our document delivery service.

To hear more about the Article Galaxy Academic Collection and Article Galaxy Scholar Platform, plan to attend the informational webinar on February 23, at 2pm.  

 

“With Article Galaxy Scholar, 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
