NN/LM Ending Support for Internet Explorer 8

Due to recent software updates on, Internet Explorer 8 is no longer supported. Some read-only sections of will continue to be available via IE8. However, anyone using IE8 will probably not be able to submit assignments in online courses utilizing the NN/LM Moodle framework, and may not even be able to access and log into Moodle courses. Other services that require data to be posted to the server are also likely to fail. In addition, DOCLINE will not support IE8 after the end of 2014. Please visit the NN/LM System Requirements page to see a complete list of supported browsers. For best usability, NLM recommends that libraries should begin talking to their local IT departments about upgrading their browsers to at least Internet Explorer 10.

Starting January 12, 2016, Microsoft will drop support, including security updates, for older Internet Explorer browser versions. Only the most recent version of IE for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. Microsoft’s Stay up-to-date with Internet Explorerblog page provides a good explanation of why IE users should upgrade to the most current version.

Ebola Resources

DIMRC  wants to take the opportunity at this time to inform you of some important resources you may find useful with the current Ebola situation, since it is becoming more of an international concern. Whereas we do have some information in WISER on Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers (of which Ebola is one of the agents), we’d also like to point you to the following trusted resources for more current information that is pertinent to the current outbreak. Please note that this web-based information is much more current than our apps can be, since the situation evolves so rapidly.


  • NLM Ebola Information:

As a library, we collect, organize & disseminate information. The resources below contain links to many government, non-government, international, journal articles, situation reports, multi-language, maps, & social media information.
