ArticleReach Direct

Resource Sharing for Journal Articles

Software and Consortium

​ArticleReach Direct is a document delivery solution by Innovative Interfaces that supports resource sharing of non-returnables, in both print and electronic form, through a union catalog. Completely integrated within the Innovative suite of products, ArticleReach provides users with the most efficient workflow of any Document Delivery solution on the market, including initiating requests to potential suppliers, requests administration, and usage tracking for statistics and copyright compliance.

ArticleReach Direct is also a growing international consortium of academic and public libraries, including libraries in Australia, California, Missouri, Iowa, and more. Members have created a combined catalog of their journal collections. Authorized users from each library may request articles from other member libraries journals by requesting them online in the ArticleReach Direct Catalog or through their home libraries electronic indexes.

This service is available to MOBIUS member libraries as part of their membership fees. 


ArticleReach Direct streamlines article requesting by simplifying the process. Staff at the patron's home library do not need to broker the request as they would with traditional ILL. Requests are patron initiated thorough the ArticleReach Direct Union Catalog or your library's link resolver, then system automatically selects an appropriate library to fill the request based on holdings data. The lending library scans the article and uploads a PDF to a designated Dropbox folder and the article is delivered straight to the patron's library account. 

  • Cuts ILL costs and saves staff time
  • Brings more articles to users
  • Delivers full text to the user's desktop
  • Speeds discovery-to-delivery
  • Boosts user convenience 
  • Low total cost of ownership
