DOCLINE: Offer Loansome Doc Services!
DOCLINE users have an avenue to provide support to health professionals by extending Loansome Doc (LD) services. http://nnlm.gov/rsdd/loansome . Some of the advantages are that 1) affiliated health professionals can order and check on status of articles themselves 2) unaffiliated health professionals can have better access to biomedical literature and 3) extra user services can enhance the status of the library within your institution.
Currently, twenty-five DOCLINE libraries, in the MidContinental Region, offer Loansome Doc services to unaffiliated health professionals. We need more providers and it’s easy to start. Login to your DOCLINE account, click on the tab to update your institutional record and then click on the “Loansome Doc” tab on the left. You have the ability to set preferences for the service according to what makes sense for your library. Questions about the service? Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. [jh]
