It’s been 35 years since NLM’s interlibrary loan (ILL) request routing system, DOCLINE®, was launched with a goal of enabling medical libraries to get biomedical literature into the hands of people who need it as efficiently and quickly as possible.
NLM is implementing changes to make it easier for online health information seekers to find and navigate trusted disaster health information. As of November 2020, NLM has begun the process of transitioning DIMRC programs to other parts of NLM, integrating them into other NLM resources, making them accessible on partner sites, or eventually discontinuing them.
NLM has created a new resource for librarians: the NIH Preprint Pilot Librarian Toolkit. This toolkit provides information and resources about the NIH Preprint Pilot, NLM’s latest project to increase the early discoverability of NIH-supported research results.
MedlinePlus now has a social media toolkit available in both English and Spanish. Use the toolkit to share MedlinePlus resources on your social media or other communication channels to connect your community to high-quality, relevant health and wellness information that is trusted and easy to understand.
