Reprints Desk Enhances Single Article Servicewith Unmediated Workflow ComponentsLos Angeles, Calif., June 5, 2008–
Reprints Desk, Inc., a subsidiary of Derycz Scientific, Inc.,continues to focus on making access to published content as easy and cost effective as possible.Reprints Desk’s newly released Order Filtering feature, in combination with Open URL link-outsand single sign-on functionality, enables customers to make the most of the content resourcesthey have already paid for or licensed, including online subscriptions and Copyright ClearanceCenter licenses.In support of customer demand for a seamless unmediated document delivery workflow, theOrder Filtering feature checks incoming document orders against customer holdings in order to “bounce-back” orders to internal sources for fulfillment when appropriate. Order Filtering can becombined with other components to create an end-user friendly workflow. For example, OpenURL link-outs can be used to pass citation data and place orders with Reprints Desk. Single sign-on capabilities allow end-users to access the Reprints Desk order form and other website featureswithout logging in with a specific username and password.Scott Ahlberg, Reprints Desk’s Head of Corporate Services, said, “A full unmediated workflowallows customers to track statistics on journal and article usage, by user or department,regardless of how the content is paid for. Our Order Filtering Service can be configured to work with a library’s particular requirements for delivery and billing. For example, orders matchinginternal holdings can be “bounced” to the requestor or to a specified service administrator. Wethink it is important to recognize that corporate libraries function in a variety of environments,often across geographic lines, and a certain level of customization is important.” Order Filtering, Open URL link-outs, and single sign-on are among the features Reprints Desk supports in order to provide its customers with seamless unmediated access to content,recognizing institutional requirements and end-user preferences.
