DOCLINE Users: Tips For Keeping Your Accounts Current

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

All institutions using DOCLINE need to  regularly perform maintenance on their accounts.  Here’s a checklist of things to keep current:

  • Regularly review and update your library’s holdings in SERHOLD to make sure they are accurate.  The goal is to keep the DOCLINE system running efficiently and quickly. Inaccurate holdings can cause problems. Update at least once a year
  • Make sure that you set up holdings so that your library can always meet the minimum fill rate(75%.) The region’s DOCLINE coordinator can help you with questions.
  • Review your routing table.  Remove any LIBIDs that have the designation “Not a DOCLINE Library”  or “Closed.” Follow the recommended guidelines for arranging  library groups and resource libraries.
  • Review and update your institutional record at least once a year.  It’s important update people, contact information, borrowing / lending preferences, etc. as those things change.
  • Smile and have fun with DOCLINE and its capabilities!  For some basics view the FAQs after logging-in.  [jh]
