DOCLINE Internet Explorer Support

Friday, August 30th, 2013

**Support Added for Internet Explorer 10

NLM now supports Internet Explorer 10 for DOCLINE and Loansome Doc. Browser settings for Internet Explorer 10 are similar to previous versions of IE – see http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/ie10_settings.html

**Support Ending for Internet Explorer 7

Microsoft has announced the end of support for Windows XP and Internet Explorer 7 as of April 2014.  Due to our development schedule and limited resources for testing, DOCLINE will be ending support for Internet Explorer 7 as of November 30, 2013.  We understand the challenges of different browser version requirements from multiple systems in library environments but NLM must move forward with current browser standards.

DOCLINE may continue to work with IE7, however, NLM staff will not test new versions of DOCLINE or Loansome Doc with Internet Explorer 7, nor will we fix any future issues that are identified as being present only in IE7.  Libraries should begin talking to their local IT departments about upgrading their browsers to at least Internet Explorer 9.

Users upgrading their browsers or using a new PC should modify their browser settings for use with DOCLINE.  See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/system_requirements.html#browser

Summer Vacation? How to Prevent Requests from Routing to Your Library in DOCLINE

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

DOCLINE “Out of Office”

Summer vacation season has arrived so we would like to remind users that you can prevent requests from routing to your library during a closure by completing the ‘Out of Office’ request form in DOCLINE (Go to Institutions, Update, Out of Office page). Detailed instructions for use of this feature can be found at: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 do suggest you submit your request for deactivation a few days in advance of your departure to allow your RML time to review.

Please note only one ‘Out of Office’ date range is permitted at a time; you cannot request a second deactivation period until the present period is past.

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, please 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.

Now It Is Even Easier to Donate Journals to NLM

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

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.

Karen Sinkule, Coordinator
Journal Donation Program

MLA 2013 DOCLINE Presentation Now Available

Friday, May 17th, 2013

The DOCLINE presentation given at MLA 2013 is now available to view from the DOCLINE presentations page at:  http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/doclinepresentations.html.  The presentation includes speaker notes.

The "MLA 2013 DOCLINE Update" presents data highlights and preliminary analysis from the recent national survey of DOCLINE libraries as part of the NLM strategic planning initiative exploring the future of resource sharing.  The goal of the initiative was to better understand the resource sharing needs of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine given the declining use of DOCLINE for ILL and Loansome Doc for document delivery.  We clearly heard that DOCLINE is still vital to many of you.  The presentation also gave a brief overview of recent and upcoming releases.
We invite libraries to share their thoughts on the results presented, and any further insights into their future needs regarding obtaining biomedical literature for health professionals.  You can send comments to NLM by clicking Contact Us in DOCLINE or at https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/help_page.cfm or discuss with your Regional Medical Library.
Also available are the NLM Theater presentation recordings at:
