GMR News

DOCLINE 5.2 Released

DOCLINE 5.2 has been released and is now available. Below is a list of the new features with helpful links to NLM's FAQ page:

NLM anticipates that the library availability enhancements will improve overall system performance by reducing the number of requests routed to libraries not actively lending, resulting in shorter times to fill and fewer routes to fill. Improved request receipt rates from lenders and faster individual turnaround time may also result.
