DOCLINE Tip of the Month: Do Not Route To List

Tugger the DOCLINE Mascot

The “Do Not Route To” list may be used to prevent requests from routing to individual libraries in Library Groups in a Routing Table, Resource Libraries, or “All Other Libraries;” or to temporarily prevent requests from routing to lenders listed individually in Routing Table cells.

Borrowers can prevent their requests from routing to a specific member of a Library Group in their Routing Table by adding the LIBID to the Do Not Route To list. This can be done for an individual request during the Borrow process, or with a default list of Do Not Route To LIBIDs in the Borrowing Preferences, Serial Routing section of the Institution record.

Note: No more than 20 LIBIDs are allowed on this list. Users wanting to permanently prevent requests from routing to libraries listed individually in their Routing Instructions should remove the LIBIDs from their Routing Table or M/A/N Map rather than using the Do Not Route To feature.

To learn more about how DOCLINE routing works, go to the FAQ DOCLINE page. 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!

DOCLINE Tip of the Month: Updating Serial Holdings

Tugger the DOCLINE Mascot

DOCLINE depends on accurate, up-to-date Serial Holdings information for correct routing of requests. This information should be updated whenever you start, change, or cancel a subscription. Make sure that the proper publisher license agreements are in place so that you can provide these documents by interlibrary loan. Accurate holdings data means you’ll receive fewer requests for items you do not own!

For print volumes you wish to weed out of your collection, we encourage you to participate in the NLM Journal Donation Program.

You can find more information on updating your DOCLINE holdings on the DOCLINE FAQ page. Also, your RML provides DOCLINE Serial Holdings training. Please contact Marco Tamase if you are interested.

DOCLINE Tip of the Month: Out of Office Request

Summer has just started and some of you may have vacation plans ahead. Will your library be closed for two or more business days (not including the weekend)?

To prevent DOCLINE requests from routing to your library during staff absences, use the Out of Office feature in your institution record. To access this, go to Institutions, Update, then Out of Office. Enter the date range when requests should not route to your library and click Request Approval.

NLM recommends processing as many requests as possible as “Filled” or “Not Filled” on the last day prior to your library becoming inactive. At the end of the day, receipt any new requests, and process all outstanding requests as “Not Filled” so they will immediately route on to the next potential lender.

More information on this feature is available on the DOCLINE web site.

ILL Requests on DOCLINE-L

NLM’s DOCLINE Customer Service staff has noticed a growing number of ILL requests being posted to DOCLINE-L. According to DOCLINE-L guidelines, the list is intended for communication about DOCLINE and matters relating to its use. ILL requests should not be posted to DOCLINE-L. With over 1,400 subscribers, DOCLINE-L is a powerful communication tool for the DOCLINE community. By keeping list traffic within scope, subscribers will receive focused and relevant messages.

To more easily fill troublesome requests, possible strategies include increasing the number of libraries that DOCLINE will automatically consider for routing, by selecting all routing options (Resource Libraries, NLM, All Other Libraries), and selecting additional alternate delivery methods. Another approach is to search Serial Holdings to identify a library owning the specific title, volume or year, and choose your desired search filters (e.g., Not My Routing Table, Electronic Journal, etc.). The online Help manual and FAQs linked from within DOCLINE provide detailed information about routing, borrowing, and searching serial holdings. We are also happy to help with strategies for requesting challenging citations, and getting the most out of DOCLINE. Within DOCLINE, click the “Contact Us” link and then select “Contact Your RML.”

After exhausting your interlibrary loan options in DOCLINE, please use other sources or post your ILL request to MEDLIB-L, which permits these messages in emergencies or to titles unavailable through regular interlibrary loan networks. Please refer to the MEDLIB-L guidelines for posting messages to ensure the best response to your posting.
