Now It Is Even Easier to Donate Journals to NLM
Since April, 2009, NLM’s Journal Donation System allowed DOCLINE libraries to determine whether NLM needs any volumes of print journals for which they have entered holdings information. Earlier this year, NLM launched Version 2 of the system. DOCLINE libraries are now be able to offer any title, including titles not owned by NLM. The system can be accessed at www.nlm.nih.gov/journaldonation/ or by searching “Journal Donations” on NLM’s home page. In the journal donation system, click on “Help” for detailed instructions. For additional assistance, contact NLM at (301) 496-0081 or NLMJournalDonation@mail.nlm.nih.gov. NLM will pay shipping via FedEx for volumes we need. To donate pre-1871 journal volumes to the History of Medicine Division, see www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/donate.html.
Thank you to DOCLINE libraries which have donated an estimated 6,000 volumes since the beginning of the journal donation program to fill in items missing from NLM’s collection. We hope that these latest enhancements will make it easier for libraries to donate materials.
