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:

NLM ILL Survey to Be Released

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

NLM will be inviting DOCLINE libraries to participate in a survey on interlibrary loan practices and needs of the health science libraries in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) and Canada.  This is your opportunity to help shape resource sharing programs of the future.

NLM initiated this survey to investigate the reasons for the declining use of DOCLINE and current practices of libraries regarding resource sharing.  The number of ILL requests entered into DOCLINE has decreased 46% since 2002 while Loansome Doc requests declined 68% in that same period.  Your response to this survey is very important and will help us to understand the resource sharing needs of librarians in the NN/LM and Canada, and how NLM can best meet those needs now and in the future.  We look forward to your participation.

The survey has 30 questions that we estimate will take about 12 minutes to complete.

NLM will be sending the invitation email via SurveyMonkey to the address of each library’s ILL contact reported in their DOCLINE institution record.  If that email fails, the survey will be immediately emailed to the ILL delivery address for the DOCLINE library.  If the listed ILL contact has previously opted out of receiving emails from SurveyMonkey, please contact DOCLINE at https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/ask.cfm to receive a link to the survey.  Responders can leave the survey before completion in order to confirm their responses.  The original email link will return them to where they left off.
