How to Apply for Network Membership

To apply, please submit a New Member Application.

Your information will be entered into the DOCLINE database to create a member’s Institution Record. Data stored in the Institution Record will be accessible only to Full Member libraries that participate in the DOCLINE system. There are portions of contact data, however, that are made available to the general public at the NER web site. If you have any questions about applying for network membership in the NN/LM-NER, please contact the New England Regional office.

Responsibilities of Network Membership

Each Full Member and Affiliate Member institution must agree to make the following contributions:

  • Designate an individual as NN/LM Liaison/local contact person. This person is responsible for keeping updated and informed on network-related information (such as staying connected to the NAHSL-L online discussion list);
  • Permit listing in the national registry of network members. National registry information is available online through the DOCLINE Institution Record and through the NN/LM Web site; and
  • Provide basic information on collections and services to NLM by keeping information stored in the DOCLINE Institution Record both updated and accurate.
