Copyright Clearance Center Launches Get It Now for Academic Institutions

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and provider of licensing solutions, announced the launch of Get It Now. The service complements academic institutions’ interlibrary loan (ILL) borrowing services by providing immediate fulfillment of full-text articles from unsubscribed journals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through a single, cost-effective, and easy-to-use application, integrated directly into a user’s workflow.

Get It Now was developed with the participation of The California State University system and the Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project at The State University of New York at Geneseo. It includes content from leading journal publishers, including Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons, Wolters Kluwer, Nature Publishing Group, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Additional publishers are being added on an ongoing basis.

If patrons wish to read articles from a journal not currently subscribed to by their institution’s library, they can either choose to borrow the articles via traditional ILL or click the Get It Now link within their search results and have the content emailed to them. Average turnaround time for Get It Now articles is less than five minutes. According to a recent study in the journal College and Research Libraries, the average time for a traditional ILL delivery is between five and seven days. Get It Now delivers high-quality, accessible, full-color PDFs of journal content in minutes. It eliminates the need for credit card transactions by offering monthly institutional invoicing and has several safeguards in place to prevent misuse. Get It Now can also be accessed by librarians via an “Addon” in OCLC’s ILLiad application.

Get It Now supplements CCC’s Annual Copyright License for Academic Institutions, allowing institutions that hold the license to obtain content through the Get It Now service and share it internally in many ways, including email, postings to e-reserves and course management systems, inclusion in coursepacks or for classroom handouts and scholarly research.
