DOCLINE Reaches 30 Million Transactions
From NLM, 10/19/2010:
The DOCLINE Team would like to take a moment to acknowledge a DOCLINE milestone – the 30 millionth request was entered into DOCLINE today. The 30 million requests includes both Loansome Doc and DOCLINE transactions.
DOCLINE Request # 30000000 was entered by Saint Louis University on October 19, 2010 at 12:06 pm Eastern Time. University of Nevada School of Medicine in Reno filled the request 4 hours later at 4:06 pm Eastern Time.
DOCLINE serves over 2,900 libraries in the United States, Canada, and other countries around the world. Currently, DOCLINE libraries report more than 1.6 million serial holdings. The current fill rate is 92.9% and the average number of libraries to which a request must route before completion is just 1.26! The average time for lenders to fill a DOCLINE request is 1.04 days.
Many thanks to our DOCLINE users for their dedicated service to health professionals and the public in need of biomedical literature and health information, and for the years of support to the DOCLINE system and your many ideas for improving DOCLINE.
