Feel free to share widely with applicable candidates.
Many of our region’s hospitals have undergone mergers, affiliations and some closures. As a result, hospital and library names have changed, ILL has become centralized, DOCLINE accounts are not being used, and the listing of staff members may no longer be current. If this applies to your institution, or if you know of such closures/mergers, contact Michelle Burda, NN/LM MAR Network and Advocacy Coordinator so she can reflect such changes in DOCLINE and ensure more efficient functionality of the system.
Even if the above does not apply to you, this is a good opportunity to take 2 minutes to review your DOCLINE information so that your record reflects a current review date. Follow these quick steps:
1. Log in to your DOCLINE account
2. Click “Update (LIBID)” in the top menu bar
3. Go through the Address, People, Membership and other fields in the side menu bar and edit as needed
4. Click ‘Save’
5. Even if no changes need made, clicking save will update your DOCLINE record review date.

Hershey Medical Center and the Penn State College of Medicine since their inception. These collections are frequently used in support of public relations and historical documentation efforts by various units of the Medical Center, the College and Penn State University, most recently for the 40th anniversary documentary Memories and Milestones.

Summer vacation season is here and we’d like remind you to complete the ‘Out of Office’ request form in DOCLINE to prevent requests from routing to your library when it’s closed. Detailed instructions for completing the ‘Out of Office’ request form are here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_deactivate.html.
You can set a future ‘Out of Office’ date range and request RML approval at any time. However, we suggest you do it a couple of days in advance to allow your RML time to review. Please note only one ‘Out of Office’ date range is permitted at a time.
On the last day your library is active, please process as many requests as possible as ‘Filled’ or ‘Not Filled.’ At the end of the day, receipt any new requests and process all outstanding requests as ‘Not Filled’ so they will immediately route on to the next potential lender.
If you have questions, you can call your RML at 800-338-7657. Canadian libraries should call CISTI at 1-800-668-1222. You can also reach DOCLINE customer support by clicking Contact Us in DOCLINE and filling out the Ask a Question form or at https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/help_page.cfm
Wishing you all a wonderful summer.
