NLM Journal Donation System Celebrates First Birthday
One year ago NLM launched a Web-based journal donation system to make it easy for DOCLINE libraries to find out if we need any volumes of print journals they are discarding. The new system has been a big success, and libraries report that it’s easy to use. From April 2009 through March 2010, a total of 217 libraries submitted offers and 2,437 items were added to NLM’s collection. Thanks to all of the libraries that donated material.
Please continue to help us make our print journal collection as complete as possible. If you are a DOCLINE library, go to www.nlm.nih.gov/journaldonation/ <http://www.nlm.nih.gov/journaldonation/> to see which volumes NLM needs. If you’re not, please contact us at 301-496-0081 or NLMJournalDonation@mail.nih.gov <mailto:NLMJournalDonation@mail.nih.gov> . NLM will pay for shipping.
