Reprints Desk Launches Document Delivery Service for Academic Institutions

Reprints Desk, Inc., a Research Solutions company, announced the launch of A-Z Academic Document Delivery Collection, a new single-article document delivery retrieval service for academic libraries that provide literature acquisition services to faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. University of Washington Libraries was among the first users of this new service, which Reprints Desk initially launched to a limited number of academic institutions in 2012.

"Document delivery has always been a part of our services for UW libraries users, and this service gives us added benefits of both speed and effective use of funds,” said Heidi Nance, head of Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery services at University of Washington Libraries.

The collection, comprised of content from leading publishers, includes more than 14,000 journal titles and single chapters from more than 10,000 books. Reprints Desk provides a high-quality PDF within minutes for each document delivery request that the company receives. Reprints Desk makes the service available for a low transactional service fee, plus a special academic copyright royalty charge that is normally between $15 and $25.

“The A-Z Academic Document Delivery Collection is an important addition to academic institutions’ collection management mix, offering significant cost savings over commercial document delivery rates and in many cases ILL,” said Ian Palmer, head of sales and marketing. “As part of our ‘no hassle’ approach to customer engagement, academic institutions can sign up and start ordering the same day without pressure to buy any additional services from Reprints Desk. Customers can also count on us to get the scholarly papers they need when time is of the essence since we’ve now integrated our flagship document delivery service capabilities featuring no collection limitations and 24-hour a day fulfillment.”
