On July 1, 2019, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will retire the Loansome Doc system due to declining use. The decision to retire the system is in line with our commitment to the NLM Strategic Plan 2017-2027: A Platform for Biomedical Discovery and Data-Powered Health.

The following resources offer alternative access to journal articles:

To help with this transition, a Loansome Doc Retirement Toolkit is available and includes a “To Do” checklist, instructions on how to produce a list of your Loansome Doc Patrons, and alternatives for receiving requests from users.

NOTE: New user registration for Loansome Doc will be disabled on February 4, 2019.
