Announcing DOCLINE 5.0

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

NLM announces the upcoming release of DOCLINE 5.0 on August 27, 2014.  DOCLINE 5.0 introduces an embargo field to serial holdings which will be used by the routing algorithm.  The new version also adds in the Institution record a monthly summary of ILL borrowing and lending for libraries, and an option for libraries to set the default “Ship to” for Loansome Doc transfers.

To learn more about the upcoming changes including screenshots, see the Release Notes:

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 5.0.

We plan to release DOCLINE 5.0 the morning of Wednesday, August 27, 2014.  We anticipate that DOCLINE and Loansome Doc will be unavailable for approximately one hour Wednesday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am Eastern Time while we make the changes.
