Changes to DOCLINE password security requirements – coming in January

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Dear DOCLINE Users –

 

Beginning January 7, 2016, DOCLINE account passwords will need to meet new complexity requirements. On January 6, we will email all DOCLINE libraries instructions on how to change passwords to meet the new requirements. Please change your password on January 7 or shortly thereafter. *** If you do not change your password by February 1, 2016, it will be automatically changed for you.

 

Please note that we have to change the system to accept the new password requirements and we won’t be making the necessary system changes until January 7. Therefore, passwords changed prior to January 7 will not meet the new requirements and you’ll have to change your password again.

 

As part of this security update, User IDs not used to log in during 2015 will be deleted on February 1, 2016, and Libraries without User IDs active in 2015 will be set to non-participant status.

 

Please use the DOCLINE Contact forms, here: https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/help_page.cfm to reach out to the DOCLINE Coordinator at your Regional Medical Library (RML) or DOCLINE Customer Support if you have questions about your user account, your library’s status or Institution Record.

Introducing iOS Educational Apps for Students from the National Library of Medicine

Monday, December 14th, 2015

December 2, 2015 – The National Library of Medicine‘s (NLM) Division of Specialized Information Services is pleased to announce the launch of three interactive, educational iOS apps for high school students studying biology, chemistry and environmental health. These FREE, readily accessible resources assist students with grasping concepts such as DNA base pairing, the Bohr model of the atom and environmental conservation. Two of the iOS apps, Bohr Thru and Base Chase, were developed in collaboration with a high school educator and are easily usable within the biology/chemistry classroom setting. The third game, Run4Green, is a fun and informative learning tool that reinforces concepts relating to environmental conservation and can be used as an engagement extension activity. Each of the three iOS games is iPhone, iPad and iPod touch compatible, and can be freely downloaded (with no in-game purchases) today by visiting the Itunes App Store at:  https://itunes.apple.com/td/developer/national-library-of-medicine/id352646071
