Average turnaround time for Get It Now articles is less than five minutes.

During our initial trial phase, you can use Get It Now to obtain rapid access to articles from the following journals:

Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry
Cell Communication & Adhesion
Clinical and Translational Science
Clinical Toxicology
Current Atherosclerosis Reports
Current Medical Research and Opinion
Expert Opinion on Biological Therapy

Throughout the pilot program all fees associated with Get It Now, including article costs and copyright fees, will be paid by the Library; there is no cost to the patron to use this service.

To request delivery of an article via Get It Now, use the CitationLinker tab on the Library’s eJournals page. Enter the citation information of the article you want to order. (Hint: For easiest access, use the article’s PMID [PubMed ID] if you have it). After submitting the citation information, click on the Get It Now service link. Next, enter your University ID and the email address where the article will be delivered. A confirmation email confirms your order and a few minutes later you will receive an email with your article attached.

The Eccles Library is actively seeking creative and cost-effective solutions, such as Get It Now that provide access to unsubscribed journal content. Library staff encourages you to give the service a try and welcomes your feedback. Please contact Christy Jarvis at 801-581-3031 with questions or comments.
