MLA 2013 DOCLINE Presentation Now Available for Viewing!
The presentation for the DOCLINE Users Group Meeting, given at the 2013 MLA Annual Meeting, is now available to view from the NLM DOCLINE presentations page. The presentation includes speaker notes. The “MLA 2013 DOCLINE Update” presents data highlights and preliminary analysis from the recent national survey of DOCLINE libraries, as part of the NLM strategic planning initiative exploring the future of resource sharing. The goal of the initiative was to better understand the resource sharing needs of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, given the declining use of DOCLINE for ILL and Loansome Doc for document delivery. The results showed that DOCLINE is still a vital service! The presentation also gave a brief overview of recent and upcoming DOCLINE releases.
Libraries are invited to share their thoughts on the results presented, and any further insights into future needs regarding obtaining biomedical literature for health professionals. Comments may be sent to NLM by using the Contact Us feature of DOCLINE, or by discussing with NN/LM PSR staff.
