Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and provider of licensing solutions, announced the launch of "Get It Now," a service that complements academic institutions' Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowing services by providing immediate fulfillment of full-text articles from unsubscribed journals.

Get It Now was developed with the participation of The California State University and the Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project at The State University of New York at Geneseo. It includes content from leading journal publishers, including Elsevier, John Wiley & Sons, Wolters Kluwer, Nature Publishing Group, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Additional publishers are being added on an ongoing basis.

If patrons wish to read articles from a journal not currently subscribed to by their institution's library, they can either choose to borrow the articles via traditional ILL or click the Get It Now link within their search results and have the content emailed to them. Average turnaround time for Get It Now articles is less than five minutes.
