April 25, 2023 – Danvers, Mass. –  CCC, a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces an expansion to its longstanding integration with Ex Libris, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for higher education. CCC’s award-winning article delivery service, Get It Now, is now available via a free add-on within Ex Libris’ Rapido integrated borrowing solution where articles can be purchased by library staff and delivered directly to patrons.        

Get It Now provides faculty, students, researchers, and staff with full-text articles from unsubscribed journals – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With Get It Now, librarians can purchase high-quality article PDFs from over 19,000 leading journals for immediate delivery. Get It Now is used by hundreds of academic libraries around the world to help expand their virtual collections.

Rapido from Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, is an integrated borrowing solution designed for modern library experiences. For users, Rapido provides an integrated digital borrowing experience that acts as an extension of the library collection. Students manage the borrowing experience in a few clicks, without ever leaving the library’s interface. Its transparent delivery dates lets users know whether items will arrive in time for their assignment. For libraries, Rapido extends their collection, without extending the budget, with automated access to the resources of the Rapido community. In addition, with its automation of the borrowing and lending processes, staff manage a higher volume of requests with less effort.

“CCC makes it easy for faculty, researchers, staff, and students at all levels to access and share copyrighted content with innovative licensing and content solutions,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “As a result of this expanded integration with Ex Libris, Rapido customers can enjoy the benefits of our easy-to-use Get It Now service integrated directly into its platform, providing unmatched content discovery and immediate access in support of scholarly research.”
