Desktop Article Delivery

Desktop article delivery from the UW Libraries and beyond... at no cost for current UW students, faculty and staff

I want to let you know about a special pilot project the Libraries is conducting this spring that faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and staff will find useful.

From March through June, the UW Libraries will be piloting a service thatwill provide desktop delivery of journal articles. Libraries staff will pull and scan journal articles from print volumes held by the UW Libraries and deliver them electronically to your desktop free of charge. The purpose of the pilot is to gather data about the actual demand and costs for such a service. At the end of the academic year the results will be evaluated and we'll determine if a permanent pull and scan service is feasible. Of course, our budget situation for the coming year is uncertain at this point, but we think it's important to gather the data now so that we'll be in a position to make a decision in the future.

More information about the pilot project is available at
