Coming in January: New DOCLINE Password Security Requirements

Beginning January 7, 2016, DOCLINE account passwords will need to meet new complexity requirements. On January 6, all DOCLINE libraries will receive email instructions on how to change passwords to meet the new requirements. The notification will include the specifics of what constitutes a valid password, as will the “change password” dialog. The specific instructions will not be made publically available. Passwords should be changed on January 7 or shortly thereafter. Passwords not changed by February 1, 2016, will be automatically changed. The DOCLINE system must be changed to accept the new password requirements, and these changes will not be made until January 7. Therefore, passwords changed prior to January 7 will not meet the new requirements and will need to be changed again. As part of this security update, User IDs not used to log in during 2015 will be deleted on February 1, 2016, and libraries without User IDs active in 2015 will be set to non-participant status.

Announcing DOCLINE 5.2 Release on October 14

The National Library of Medicine has announced the upcoming release of DOCLINE 5.2, on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. The version includes several new features, including the ability for lenders to set a “standard weekly schedule when library provides ILL service,” and the ability for libraries to schedule multiple upcoming “out of office” dates along with a calendar date-choice widget. Also, temporary deactivation, i.e., “out of office,” will no longer require RML review. ILL software vendors Clio, ILLiad, QuickDoc, and Relais were given the opportunity to validate their software against DOCLINE 5.2. To learn more about the upcoming changes, visit the Release Notes, which include helpful screenshots.

NLM LocatorPlus Bibliographic Data Addition/Modification Form: New Online Version for DOCLINE Reporting

On October 1, NLM will implement a new method for requesting changes or additions to bibliographic data in LocatorPlus for DOCLINE reporting. The paper-based request form, NLM LocatorPlus Bibliographic Data Addition/Modification Form, will be replaced by a new online request form, DOCLINE Journals Data Addition/Modification Form. There will be a permanent redirect to the new form. Requesters should fill out the form with the required and other relevant information. Supporting documentation may be attached. When the form is complete, click the “Send Message” button to submit the request. Requesters will receive an automated receipt confirmation via email. Another email will be sent when the request has been processed and completed by NLM.

DOCLINE users should begin using the online request form on October 1, 2015. New requests for bibliographic changes and additions must be submitted online. Requests using the paper form, sent by mail or fax, or requests sent to NLM customer service, will not be accepted after October 15, 2015, and will be returned to the sender. NLM anticipates that this change will allow for speedier processing of requests and more accurate data in LocatorPlus and the NLM Catalog. Please note that the policy for addition of journal titles to LocatorPlus has not changed. For further details, refer to the NLM Policy Statement on the Addition of Non-NLM Titles to the NLM LocatorPlus Database for DOCLINE Reporting.
