Many of our region’s hospitals have undergone mergers, affiliations and some closures. As a result, hospital and library names have changed, ILL has become centralized, DOCLINE accounts are not being used, and the listing of staff members may no longer be current. If this applies to your institution, or if you know of such closures/mergers, contact Michelle Burda, NN/LM MAR Network and Advocacy Coordinator so she can reflect such changes in DOCLINE and ensure more efficient functionality of the system.
Even if the above does not apply to you, this is a good opportunity to take 2 minutes to review your DOCLINE information so that your record reflects a current review date. Follow these quick steps:
1. Log in to your DOCLINE account
2. Click “Update (LIBID)” in the top menu bar
3. Go through the Address, People, Membership and other fields in the side menu bar and edit as needed
4. Click ‘Save’
5. Even if no changes need made, clicking save will update your DOCLINE record review date.
For questions or assistance, and to report closures/mergers contact:

Summer vacation season is here and we’d like remind you to complete the ‘Out of Office’ request form in DOCLINE to prevent requests from routing to your library when it’s closed. Detailed instructions for completing the ‘Out of Office’ request form are here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_deactivate.html.
You can set a future ‘Out of Office’ date range and request RML approval at any time. However, we suggest you do it a couple of days in advance to allow your RML time to review. Please note only one ‘Out of Office’ date range is permitted at a time.
On the last day your library is active, please process as many requests as possible as ‘Filled’ or ‘Not Filled.’ 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.
If you have questions, you can call your RML at 800-338-7657. Canadian libraries should call CISTI at 1-800-668-1222. You can also reach DOCLINE customer support by clicking Contact Us in DOCLINE and filling out the Ask a Question form or at https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/help_page.cfm
Wishing you all a wonderful summer.

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:
- Open Internet Explorer
- Click Tools
- Click Compatibility View settings
- Uncheck “Display all websites in Compatibility View” or remove DOCLINE from the list of “Websites you’ve added to Compatibility View”
- 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 email@example.com, or by phone at (617) 738-1800.
