DOCLINE maintenance & DOCLINE 5.1

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

All,

NLM announces the upcoming release of DOCLINE 5.1 on December 11, 2014. The latest version of DOCLINE will allow libraries to turn off checking LinkOut as the source for embargo periods during routing for all titles.   The global on/off setting is only displayed for LinkOut participants. Additionally, we have added a new summary count of holdings by format and by type of embargo (e.g., LinkOut, manual, none).

To learn more about the upcoming changes, including screenshots, see the Release Notes: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/docline_rel_info_v5_1.html

The Regional Medical Libraries and CISTI have been testing the new version over the past two weeks. They can answer any DOCLINE questions and provide assistance to libraries in their regions.   The vendors (Clio, ILLiad, QuickDOC, and Relais) were given the opportunity to validate their software against DOCLINE 5.1.

We plan to release DOCLINE 5.1 the morning of Thursday, December 11, 2014.

Lynda.com Borrower Testimonial

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

lynda

In early October, we announced the acquisition of a membership to Lynda.com for our Network Member’s use.

Hear what one borrower, Donna Belcinski, Clinical Librarian at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, CT, has to say about Lynda.com:

“I love this site! I have found a lot of useful information on so many subjects. I viewed videos on making presentations, writing, instructional design, and marketing. All were easy to understand and helpful. I’m learning Quickbooks for a part-time job that I have as a bookkeeper, and being able to go Lynda.com and get a feel for it first was a big help. It has made my orientation to the job much shorter than if I had not had access to this resource. There are too many other topics to list here, but I think there is something for everyone at Lynda.com. I use it often, and recommend it highly.”

Please find the original announcement with a description of Lynda.com and instructions on how to borrow a login below:

Lynda.com is a leading online learning company that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Members receive unlimited access to a vast library of almost 3,000 high quality, current, and engaging video tutorials taught by great teachers who are also working professionals.

Citation Export Feature now Available

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

PMC is happy to announce the addition of a citation exporter feature. This feature makes it easy to retrieve either styled citations that you can copy/paste into your manuscripts, or to download them into a format compatible with your bibliographic reference manager software.

When viewing an Entrez search results page, each result summary will now include a “Citation” link. When, clicked, this will open a pop-up window that you can use to easily copy/paste citations formatted in one of three popular styles: AMA (American Medical Association), MLA (Modern Library Association, or APA (American Psychological Association). In addition, the box has links at the bottom that can be used to download the citation information in one of three machine-readable formats, which most bibliographic reference management software can import.

The same citation box can also be invoked from an individual article, either in classic view (with the “Citation” link among the list of formats) or the PubReader view, by clicking on the citation information just below the article title in the banner.

These human-readable styled citations, and machine-readable formats, will be available through a public API, and we will be providing more details about that in another announcement, on the pmc-utils-announce mailing list. Please subscribe to that list if you are interested.
