DOCLINE Ettiquette

Posted in ILL at 10:04 am by Alexia

Karen Bülow, Health Professionals Outreach Coordinar for the Southcentral Region of the National Nework of Libraries of Medicne, has put together an article on Docline ettiquette.  With the prices of journals, both print and electronic, skyrocketing hospital libraries will be relying heavily on interlibrary loan.  This document was designed to make interlibrary loan for medical libraries as easy and painless as possible.

The only addition I would  make is to expand the Sending section to include making sure the lending library scans the Docline coversheet when scanning and sending an article electronically, either by Ariel, email or other electronic means.

    Yes, making sure the lending library scans the Docline coversheet would save me a great deal of time. I keep statistics on who orders what by profession which makes the sheet a valuable resource. Having to go back into Docline to capture that sheet doubles the effort of printing the PDF. I would heartily endorse instruction to the lending library being included.
