Please follow the guidelines posted below when revising your routing table – they are based on recommendations made by NLM and DOCLINE Coordinators from all 8 regions in the Network.
DOCLINE Routing Table Guidelines
1. Individual local, state, and regional consortia members in the lower cells, eg. #1-3
2. Favorite & established lenders in the lower cells, eg. #1-3 (even if they’re part of a library group, such as FreeShare)
3. Any library group added to a table should be placed in a cell on its own or only with those individual libraries than can be expected to be treated equally by the algorithm. This is in order to reap the full benefit of the new routing algorithm.
4. The FreeShare library group can be placed in higher cells (#6-9). Consider placing other library groups in the middle (#4-6) or higher (#7-9) cells.
