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.
