New partnership between SirsiDynix and Research Solutions broadens horizons for easy-access scholarly content

Lehi, UT and Henderson, NV -- June 5, 2024. SirsiDynix, a leading provider of library technology software, is pleased to announce a partnership with Research Solutions, a trusted partner providing cloud-based workflow solutions to accelerate research for R&D-driven organizations. Driven by a shared belief in the power of openly accessible scholarly research, the new partnership seeks to greatly improve the article fulfillment process for customers of SirsiDynix's CloudSource+ discovery services platform and Research Solutions' Article Galaxy Scholar content delivery service.

Working together, CloudSource+ and Article Galaxy Scholar—a fast and reliable gateway to scholarly literature—will offer a uniquely forward-looking approach to content delivery. With the integration in place, libraries can opt to direct patrons to full-text open access content before exposing licensed materials. If a desired article is unavailable via open access search or via their licensed subscriptions, libraries can leverage Article Galaxy Scholar to deliver full-text PDFs to patrons' inboxes in a matter of minutes.

In addition to guaranteeing patrons a quick, intuitive path to access, the partnership will also equip CloudSource+ and Article Galaxy Scholar customers with strategies that supplement their collections and secure significant cost savings. A few of the many benefits customers can expect include:

  • Effective budget forecasting, with the ability to monitor purchasing thresholds and glean insights from timely usage data.
  • Customizable user, journal, publisher, and purchasing settings, which help libraries both anticipate and satisfy a wide array of content demands.
  • Reduced article spending, with all Article Galaxy Scholar materials fulfilled at the lowest possible acquisition cost.

"At a time when library budgets are shrinking and database subscription costs are rising, we are honored to unite with Research Solutions—and their collection of more than 40,000+ journal titles—to extend access to high-quality, cost-effective scholarly resources," says Maryśka Connolly, the CloudSource Director of Partnerships & Communications. "Our ongoing mission with CloudSource is to eliminate barriers to access while helping libraries expand their collections and reduce subscription costs. Together with Research Solutions, we can cover more ground on every front, and we look forward to identifying new ways to advance this mission and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our shared communities."

Tony Landolt, Research Solutions' Head of Academic Business Development, agrees. "This collaboration marks a significant step toward providing researchers globally with unparalleled access to scholarly content. By joining forces, we ensure users can access a vast library of resources that seamlessly bridges the gap between open access and paid content," he states. "Our commitment to empowering research and knowledge dissemination is further strengthened through this partnership, offering customers exceptional convenience and choices. We are excited to embark on this journey with SirsiDynix, driving innovation in scholarly publishing and expanding academic exploration boundaries."

For more information on this exciting integration—and the ways it will empower both libraries and patrons—join SirsiDynix and Research Solutions for a special announcement webinar at 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 11.
