Document Delivery Resources and DOCLINE Classes

DOCLINE Resources

  • MCR Document Delivery Support page Here you will find information on document delivery resources.
  • Online DOCLINE Manual A great place to start if you have DOCLINE questions. Download a PDF version Here.
  • NLM's DOCLINE FAQ's A quick guide to the questions about DOCLINE that users ask with the most frequency.
  • Pacific Southwest Region's resources on Copyright This is a wonderful list of Copyright resources specific to health sciences libraries. (NOTE: The DOCLINE: Routing Tables class only brushes over Copyright Compliance and what default settings you may wish to select in your institutional record. We highly recommend you to look at the PNR's webpage to help you with a more in depth look into copyright and your library)
