Borrowing and Lending Coming to DOCLINE 6.1 on March 4!

Posted by on February 26th, 2019 Posted in: Announcements, DOCLINE, NLM Products

On March 4, 2019, DOCLINE 6.1 will be released with all ILL borrowing and lending functions.

Transition schedule:

  • Borrowing will END in the original DOCLINE on Thursday, February 28, 2019, at noon EST.
  • Borrowing will BEGIN in DOCLINE 6.1, Monday, March 4, 2019, at 8:00 AM EST.

During the four-day hiatus, libraries will not be able to create new ILL requests. This allows NLM to modify both systems, gives time for current requests to complete, and will serve to reduce confusion regarding requests. Open requests from legacy DOCLINE will NOT be moved to DOCLINE 6.1.

Lenders may wish to turn on lend alert notification emails or set themselves inactive in the old system. Borrowers should consider cancelling any requests still routing in original DOCLINE after DOCLINE 6.1 is released.

After March 4:

  • If you need to update lend requests placed before February 28, go to original DOCLINE.
  • If you need to request items after March 4, go to DOCLINE 6.1.

Original DOCLINE will remain available through July 1, 2019, for Loansome Doc lending and access to pre-March ILL request data. The Original DOCLINE vs. New DOCLINE 6.1 – what can I do where? page provides a quick way to determine which version of DOCLINE you should use to complete common DOCLINE and Loansome Doc tasks.

More information, including quick tour videos of borrow and lend, will be made available soon on the Path to the redesigned DOCLINE. Also, refer to the DOCLINE 6.0 System page for more information. If you need assistance, please reach out to the National DOCLINE Coordination Office (NDCO) or write to the National Library of Medicine Help Desk.
