Reprints Desk launches Article Galaxy Scholar

Reprints Desk is launching a new service called Article Galaxy Scholar (AGS), which will provide ready access to scholarly content from over 30,000 journals within minutes to seconds. The first of its kind, AGS is an on-demand document delivery 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 the overall user experience for library patrons
  • Reduce demand on library resources and budget

Here are a few words from librarians who have tried the platform:

“UCSD Library is excited to offer a clean, simple, and improved service to our patrons. Because it is unmediated, AGS is actually relieving some staff time so we are able to focus on other work.” — Judea D’Arnaud, UC San Diego Library

“(AGS) more closely aligns the work of collection development with the work of inter-library loan/document delivery.” — Wil Weston, San Diego State University

Article Galaxy Scholar was featured at a recent MCLS webinar. If you were not able to attend the webinar you can view it on-demand, with password AGS4MCLS. Currently in limited release, MCLS members can avail themselves of a preferred consortium rate and waived implementation fee if signed up by April 1, 2022.

For more information and a quote, please contact MCLS Group Purchasing at services@mcls.org or (800) 530-9019 ext 401.
