DOCLINE and WISER Updates – July 2012

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012


DOCLINE is the National Library of Medicine(NLM’s) automated interlibrary loan (ILL) request routing and referral system.  On Jul 11, 2012, NLM released DOCLINE 4.8.  This newest release corrects several user-reported issues in the Loansome Doc interface.

Check out what’s new in this release:

 WISER iOS 3.0

WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) was designed to assist first responders in hazardous material incidents. WISER provides a wide range of information on hazardous substances, including substance identification support, physical characteristics, human health information, and containment and suppression advice.

Made available earlier this month, WISER for iOS 3.0 has become a universal app for Apple iOS devices; this new release adds native support for the iPad.

And later this September:  Mark Goldstein will be conducting a breakout session on the WISER app at this year’s Massachusetts Association of Hazardous Materials Technicians (MAHMT) conference to be held in Plymouth on September 19-21.

Check out what’s new in this release:

 WISER for iOS 3.0 can be downloaded and installed directly from the Apple App Store:
