DOCLINE 3.3 Release

Monday, February 4th, 2008

The National Library of Medicine announces the upcoming release of DOCLINE 3.3 currently scheduled for the morning of Sunday, February 10, 2008. We anticipate DOCLINE and Loansome Doc will be unavailable for approximately 2 hours while we release the latest versions of DOCLINE and Loansome Doc.

DOCLINE 3.3 Release Notes can be viewed at:

Highlights of the release include:

1. Added ability for lenders to receive email notification of new Normal, Rush, and/or Urgent Patient Care requests routed to them.

2. Revised the user interface for the requesting and viewing of serial holdings reports.

3. Within DOCLINE institution record, allow libraries to request their library be set “Inactive” during extended staff absence due to vacation or special circumstances. The new feature provides a more efficient mechanism for your Regional Medical Library to review and process Out of Office requests.

EFTS Fee Increase

The lend transaction service fee increase for the Electronic Fund Transfer System (EFTS) is scheduled to take effect on February 1, 2008.
