Articles delivered to your computer FOR FREE
UW Libraries is temporarily offering free desktop article delivery!
What is "desktop article delivery"?
It means 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.
This is a pilot project that will only be available from March 1st through June 30th. 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.
So, if you're tired of dragging yourself to the brick and mortar library to pull and copy journal articles that aren't available electronically, this pilot is for you. Take advantage while it lasts.
