PubMed’s Send to Order Feature

PubMed users continue to report an issue where the menu choices do not display when using the PubMed “Send to” feature. When this was first reported, it was determined that the problem occurs for those using older browsers (Internet Explorer 7 and 8) not supported by PubMed, or using “Compatibility View” in newer browsers (IE10 or 11). Users encountering this issue should upgrade to a more current version of Internet Explorer (IE10 or IE11) or use Firefox. DOCLINE users with new or upgraded browsers should configure their browser settings according to DOCLINE System Requirements to ensure full functionality. PubMed users should refer to the Browser Advice for NCBI Web Pages site.

DOCLINE users who are unable to upgrade or change browsers at this time can work around the issue by opening two separate browser tabs or windows, one for PubMed and the other for DOCLINE. This will allow them to search PubMed in one window/tab, then copy & paste the PMIDs from PubMed into DOCLINE in the other window/tab. Users of IE10 or IE11 experiencing the issue should check that “Compatibility View” is turned off, as follows:

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Click Tools
  3. Click Compatibility View settings
  4. Uncheck “Display all websites in Compatibility View” or remove DOCLINE from the list of “Websites you’ve added to Compatibility View”
  5. Close & reopen Internet Explorer

Note to QDPortal users – if you experience the PubMed “send to” issue with a current browser version, contact QuickDoc customer at support@nesurv.com, or by phone at (617) 738-1800.

NN/LM Ending Support for Internet Explorer 8

Due to recent software updates on nnlm.gov, Internet Explorer 8 is no longer supported. Some read-only sections of nnlm.gov 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 nnlm.gov 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 Explorer blog page provides a good explanation of why IE users should upgrade to the most current version.

Check with NLM Before Discarding Journals

The National Library of Medicine’s Journal Donation System makes it possible for libraries to determine whether NLM needs any volumes of the print journals they plan to discard. The system can be used by DOCLINE and non-DOCLINE libraries to offer any title, including titles not owned by NLM. The system can be accessed directly through the web site or by searching “Journal Donation System” on NLM’s home page. In the system, click on “Help” for detailed instructions. For additional assistance, contact NLM at (301) 496-0081 or NLMJournalDonation@mail.nlm.nih.gov. NLM will pay shipping for needed volumes. For donations of pre-1871 journal volumes, contact the NLM History of Medicine Division.

Since the beginning of the online donation system in April 2009, over 10,000 gifts have been added to the NLM collection. With the help of libraries planning to discard journal volumes, NLM can build on the success achieved to date.

DOCLINE Tip of the Month: Electronic Fund Transfer System (EFTS)

Tugger the DOCLINE Mascot

Question: What is EFTS?

Answer: The Electronic Fund Transfer System or EFTS is a transaction-based electronic billing system developed by the University of Connecticut Health Center for interlibrary loan and document delivery charges. It has been operational in New England since 1996 and is available at “https://efts.uchc.edu.”

In the Pacific Southwest Region, over 65% of DOCLINE libraries are EFTS participants. All DOCLINE libraries are encouraged to join. DOCLINE provides an EFTS Transaction File Builder to create the transaction file of charges to upload to EFTS for billing borrowers. EFTS reduces the need to create invoices and to process reimbursement checks for interlibrary loans between participants. It also provides monthly detailed transaction reports, the ability to handle differential charges (such as additional rush or fax charges), the ability to vary charges to members of special groups, and the ability to handle non-DOCLINE transactions.

EFTS also:

  • Reduces interlibrary loan associated costs and improves cash flow
  • Assists with collection development monitoring
  • Reduces human error and increases efficiency
  • Provides management reports
  • The National Library of Medicine is committed to working with the University of Connecticut Health Center EFTS staff to expand the system on a national basis to DOCLINE libraries.

The University of Connecticut Health Center has an EFTS FAQ available. If you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-338-7657 or e-mail us at psr-nnlm@library.ucla.edu!
