Get It Now (GIN) Article Purchase on Demand

Tennessee Tech employees and graduate students have access to Get It Now (GIN), an article purchase-on-demand service. GIN offers users a way to obtain full-text articles quickly from journals without a library subscription. The library pays a fee per article up to $174 per article. This service is for users who need articles immediately; if the need is not immediate, please use InterLibrary Loan (ILL), which is fast and free! 

The library's budget for GIN purchases is limited. Once the budget has been spent, GIN will be unavailable until the new fiscal year (July 1). Users are limited to 6 articles in a span of 8 hours. If a single user's high-volume GIN requests cause budget problems, they may be restricted from using GIN in the future.

Please email Sharon Holderman with questions or if you need help with GIN.
