DOCLINE Library Schedule

Standard Weekly Schedule

DOCLINE libraries can indicate the days of the week that they are normally available to fill lend requests by setting their standard weekly schedule for ILL service.

To set or update your Standard Weekly Schedule, follow these steps:

  1. Select Institutions from the DOCLINE main menu.
  2. Select Update LIBID from the top navigation bar (your Library Identifier).
  3. Select Schedule on the institution navigation bar.
  4. Check or uncheck days as appropriate.
  5. Click SAVE button.

Out of Office

In addition to the standard weekly schedule, DOCLINE participants can place their libraries inactive when there is no staff available to fill lend requests due to vacations, staff absence(s) or special circumstances. The system allows multiple out of office dates for upcoming time spans and are displayed in a table.

To set your library as “Temporarily Inactive,” follow these steps:

  1. Select Institutions from the DOCLINE main menu.
  2. Select Update (your Library Identifier).
  3. Select Schedule on the institution navigation bar.
  4. Under “Enter date range(s) when library will be closed” type or use the calendar to input the date when requests should stop routing to your library (MM-DD-YYYY format).
  5. Enter the date when requests should resume routing to your library.
  6. Click SAVE.

Note: In the past, inactive dates were approved by the RML in each region. The library will be deactivated immediately if the stop date is the present date. If the date is in the future, on that date (at 12:05 am) Time-Triggered Actions will automatically change the library's status "Temporarily Not Receiving Requests."

Calendar Widget

A calendar widget shows the dates when the library is open and closed. The widget reflects choices made in Standard Weekly Schedule, as well as Out of Office dates. Calendar display is limited to dates that are less than a year in the future.
