At this year’s MLA Annual Conference in Atlanta, NLM’s DOCLINE team provided a preview of the upcoming redesigned DOCLINE, scheduled to be rolled out in late summer of 2018! In preparation for the first release of the redesigned DOCLINE, NLM is requesting DOCLINE libraries to do the following:
A preview period is planned for mid-summer, to provide users an opportunity to try out the new system. Users are encouraged to log in and become familiarized with the new system, by reviewing and editing library and holdings information imported from the old one. During the preview, the existing DOCLINE will remain in use for borrowing and lending. NLM has also developed a DOCLINE 6.0 support page, with answers to key questions.
The DOCLINE system and its features are being rolled out in phases. A feature that does not exist now may become available soon, or later down the road. NLM asks for your patience, as they work to address a broad range of issues. NLM encourages you to continue to provide feedback about upcoming changes in the system so that your needs can be met by the time the earliest version of the system is released. Please send comments or questions to the DOCLINE Team via the NLM Support Center or to the NDCO DOCLINE Coordinator. Also, NLM recommends subscribing to the DOCLINE-L email discussion list for any future DOCLINE announcements.
