From the DOCLINE-L Email Discussion List:
DOCLINE 5.2 has been released and is now available.
**5.2 Action Items:
— Set your library’s standard weekly schedule for lending (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_schedule.html)
— Plan ahead and set out of office dates for multiple upcoming time spans – RML review no longer required (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_deactivate.html)
— Review your Institution record to ensure your lending service offerings are compatible with the library’s schedule. Update Lend Preferences, and ILL contacts if changed.
We anticipate that the library availability enhancements will improve overall system performance by reducing the number of requests routed to libraries not actively lending, resulting in shorter times to fill and fewer routes to fill. Improved request receipt rates from lenders and faster individual turnaround time may also result.
For complete release details, see the Release Notes: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/docline_rel_info_v5_2.html.
