DOCLINE 5.2 has been released and is now available.


**5.2 Action Items:


— Set your library’s standard weekly schedule for lending (


— Plan ahead and set out of office dates for multiple upcoming time spans – RML review no longer required (


— Review your Institution record to ensure your lending service offerings are compatible with the library’s schedule.  Update Lend Preferences, and ILL contacts if changed.



We anticipate that the library availability enhancements will improve overall system performance by reducing the number of requests routed to libraries not actively lending, resulting in shorter times to fill and fewer routes to fill. Improved request receipt rates from lenders and faster individual turnaround time may also result.


For complete release details, see the Release Notes:

Announcing DOCLINE 5.2

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

NLM announces the upcoming release of DOCLINE 5.2, on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.


DOCLINE 5.2 includes several new features.  One allows lenders to set a “standard weekly schedule when library provides ILL service”.  5.2 also adds the ability for libraries to schedule multiple upcoming “out of office” dates along with a calendar date-choice widget. Lastly, temporary deactivation, i.e., “out of office”, no longer requires RML review.


To learn more about the upcoming changes, see the Release Notes:, which have helpful screenshots.


The Regional Medical Libraries and CISTI have had the opportunity to test the new version. They can answer any DOCLINE questions and provide assistance to libraries in their regions.   ILL software vendors Clio, ILLiad, QuickDoc, and Relais were given the opportunity to validate their software against DOCLINE 5.2.


DOCLINE and Loansome Doc will be unavailable for approximately two hours, October 14, from 6:00 am to 8:00 am Eastern Time while NLM makes the changes.
