Summer Vacation? How to prevent requests from routing to your library in DOCLINE

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

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.

PubMed Send to Order Feature

Friday, March 13th, 2015

PubMed users continue to report an issue where the menu choices do not display when using the PubMed “Send to” feature. When this was first reported, it was determined that the problem occurs for those using older browsers (Internet Explorer 7 and 8) not supported by PubMed, or using “Compatibility View” in newer browsers (IE10 or 11). Users encountering this issue should upgrade to a more current version of Internet Explorer (IE10 or IE11) or use Firefox.

DOCLINE users with new or upgraded browsers should configure their browser settings according to DOCLINE System Requirements to ensure full functionality. PubMed users should refer to the Browser Advice for NCBI Web Pages site.

DOCLINE users who are unable to upgrade or change browsers at this time can work around the issue by opening two separate browser tabs or windows, one for PubMed and the other for DOCLINE. This will allow them to search PubMed in one window/tab, then copy & paste the PMIDs from PubMed into DOCLINE in the other window/tab. Users of IE10 or IE11 experiencing the issue should check that “Compatibility View” is turned off, as follows:

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Click Tools
  • Click Compatibility View settings
  • Uncheck “Display all websites in Compatibility View” or remove DOCLINE from the list of “Websites you’ve added to Compatibility View”
  • Close & reopen Internet Explorer

Note to QDPortal users – if you experience the PubMed “send to” issue with a current browser version, contact QuickDoc customer at support@nesurv.com, or by phone at (617) 738-1800.
