NLM ILL Survey Coming Soon

Posted by on February 27th, 2013 Posted in: NLM/NIH News


NLM will be inviting DOCLINE libraries to participate in a survey on interlibrary loan practices and needs of the health science libraries in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) and Canada.  This is your opportunity to help shape resource sharing programs of the future.

NLM initiated this survey to investigate the reasons for the declining use of DOCLINE and current practices of libraries regarding resource sharing.  The number of ILL requests entered into DOCLINE has decreased 46% since 2002 while Loansome Doc requests declined 68% in that same period.  Your response to this survey is very important and will help us to understand the resource sharing needs of librarians in the NN/LM and Canada, and how NLM can best meet those needs now and in the future.  We look forward to your participation.

The survey has 30 questions that we estimate will take about 12 minutes to complete.

NLM will be sending the invitation email via SurveyMonkey to the address of each library’s ILL contact reported in their DOCLINE institution record.  If the listed ILL contact has previously opted out of receiving emails from SurveyMonkey, please contact DOCLINE at https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/ask.cfm  to receive a link to the survey.
