Resource-sharing librarians know the pain way too well: they receive a borrowing request from a student who needs a special article that they’ve never heard of before. And no matter how many hours they spend looking for a lending library, no one is able to provide it.

But what if they could, at the click of a button, acquire that special title, right from the library management system?

This is exactly what Article Galaxy’s add-on in Rapido is built for. Article Galaxy, by Research Solutions, has collaborated with Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, to bring over 40,000 journal titles to your library system. Rapido users get access to articles from all major publishers at special copyright royalty rates and low delivery fees.

Here’s what Christopher Lee, Resource Sharing Manager at California State University, shares after having implemented it at his Library:


“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. Setup is easy and straightforward.”


Tony Landolt, Head of Academic Business Development at Research Solutions, adds:


“We are thrilled to partner with Rapido, a renowned leader in cutting-edge technology and commitment. 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.”
