DOCLINE has a new URL!
DOCLINE now utilizes SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for communication between NLM and users’ browsers. SSL helps prevent eavesdropping over the network, tampering, and message forgery. This change took place with DOCLINE version 3.2.5 which was released on October 3, 2007.
Because of this change, DOCLINE libraries should update their Login page bookmarks to https://docline.gov.
Depending upon your browser version and your browser settings, libraries may see warning messages when accessing PubMed or LocatorPlus from within the new SSL version of DOCLINE. Libraries that do not want to be warned when leaving the secure DOCLINE environment can update their browser settings. See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/system_requirements.html#browser.
- Delete existing DOCLINE bookmarks.
- Bookmark https://docline.gov.
- Review your browser settings.
See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/system_requirements.html#browser. Note: Optionally, libraries can turn off security warning messages. See the instructions at the end of the browser settings document for your browser. See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/system_requirements.html#browser.
- Clear your browser cache. See http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_clearcache.html.
- Login to https://docline.gov.
Organizations with proxy servers may need to request that their local IT group clear the cache on the proxy server.
