Libraries Can Relieve Budget Pressures Through Assessment of External Document Delivery Supply, Reports New White Paper by Derycz Scientific Subsidiary
SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Relieving the budget pressures of libraries and information centers is a task that can be performed throughout the year rather than only during annual budget reviews, and is most easily initiated by evaluating external document delivery services and configurations, according to a new white paper by Derycz Scientific, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: DYSC), subsidiary Reprints Desk, Inc. Reprints Desk today announced the online availability of the white paper, titled “Relieving Information Center Budget Pressures Through Document Delivery Cost Reduction & Workflow Re-Configuration: A Guide to Enterprise Self-Assessment” at http://goo.gl/VlOa.
“The most important message in this white paper for information professionals is to take your destiny – both library and career – into your own hands by being proactive in areas in which you can exert control and wield your expertise for the benefit of your organization,” said Robin Holmes, who was commissioned by Reprints Desk to research and write the white paper. She compiled it using industry briefings from Outsell, Inc. and other trade-focused publications, interviews with library managers and information professionals, and by sharing her own experience from her previous employment at Johnson & Johnson (J&J), ALZA Corporation and Jazz Pharmaceuticals.
Document delivery services are commonly used by corporations, academic institutions and government organizations in order to retrieve full-text articles from scholarly peer-reviewed journals – often for research purposes. Document delivery is considered to be a top deliverable and “an integral part of content delivery that is crucial to satisfying a client need” for librarians and information professionals, according to a 2008 information industry briefing entitled “Document Delivery – Best Practices and Vendor Scorecard,” produced by information industry analyst and advisory firm Outsell, Inc.
