Reprints Desk Launches Product Integration With Lean Library

May 30, 2019

Lean Library’s Browser Plug In Integrates with Reprints Desk’s Award-Winning Article Galaxy Platform, Providing Mutual Customers with On-Demand Literature Access

ENCINO, Calif., – May 30, 2019 – Research Solutions, Inc., (OTCQB: RSSS), a pioneer in providing cloud-based workflow solutions for R&D driven organizations, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Reprints Desk today announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Lean Library, a SAGE Publishing Company. Reprints Desk’s Article Galaxy research platform and its popular 24/7 article delivery service is now available from within Lean Library’s browser plug in to streamline and enhance scholarly literature access for customers.

The new integration offers Lean Library users convenient and on-demand access to full-text, peer-reviewed journal articles complementing existing publisher subscriptions. Reprints Desk customers will benefit from seamless access to another popular library tool, adding to Reprints Desk’s integrations with more than 70 portals, websites, and third-party applications.

“Our new partnership with Lean Library is a big win for our mutual customers,“ said Scott Ahlberg, Chief Operations Officer at Reprints Desk. “They will experience simplified workflows and extend their accessibility to content beyond their organization’s holdings with secure authentication.”

"At Lean Library, we believe that smart tech can - and thus should - be used to simplify library workflows,” said Johan Tilstra, Founder and CEO of Lean Library. “Our collaboration with Reprints Desk will once again allow our end users to focus more on their studies and research, and less on figuring out how to get access to materials. We're very pleased with that!"

Lean Library, a browser extension that knows whether a customer is subscribed to a particular journal, drives users to the best options for accessing full-text PDF articles. Under the new integration agreement, if an organization does not have a subscription for the paper a user wants to access, an option for document delivery can be presented—which opens a pre-filled Reprints Desk order form. The final order will be sent via OpenURL to Reprints Desk for fulfillment.

Reprints Desk’s on-demand article delivery service provides users with immediate access to journal articles online, or delivers the native PDF documents via email within minutes. Lean Library customers who want to take advantage of this document delivery integration should contact Reprints Desk at +1 (310) 477-0354 or customersupport@reprintsdesk.com to set up an account.
