This add-on offers patrons access to over 40,000 journal titles, as well as special copyright royalty rates and low delivery fees
Henderson, Nev., June 22, 2023 — Research Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: RSSS), a pioneer in providing cloud-based workflow solutions for R&D driven organizations, is now available as a solution and a part of the Ex Libris resource-sharing ecosystem.
Rapido, Ex Libris' integrated resource-sharing system, is designed to fulfill interlibrary-loan requests in an unmediated way. In certain situations, such as when a library needs to comply with copyright regulations or if no institution holds the requested title, alternative methods for accessing resources beyond the traditional Rapido workflow may be necessary. By integrating Article Galaxy, Rapido and Research Solutions can provide mutual subscribers with a cost-effective way of obtaining hard-to-find titles.
"The Article Galaxy add-on finally lets our library staff see copyright prices at the time of ordering and often gets the article to the patron within minutes," shares Christopher Lee, Resource Sharing Manager at California State University, Office of the Chancellor. "Setup is easy and straightforward."
"We are thrilled to partner with Rapido, a renowned leader in cutting-edge technology and commitment," adds Tony Landolt, Head of Academic Business Development at Research Solutions. "This collaboration combines our expertise, enabling us to deliver efficient article fulfillment solutions and provide unparalleled support to our clients' research initiatives. We eagerly anticipate the substantial benefits this partnership will bring."
Rapido's integration with Article Galaxy gives patrons access to additional chapters from nearly a million books and articles from over 40,000 journals from all major publishers.
Rapido Libraries subscribed to Research Solutions can now easily leverage the new Article Galaxy integration. This integration seamlessly enables the Article Galaxy cloud app with straightforward functionality, providing pricing information and simplifying the acquisition of articles. The Article Galaxy cloud app streamlines the entire application workflow, which saves libraries time and eliminates complexity. The acquisition process is transparent, and libraries have visibility into the process. Users receive the requested resources while closing the acquisition request, making everything automatic and effortless.
