DOCLINE -- Batch Update


Question: What Batch Update capabilities does DOCLINE offer for Serial Holdings?


Answer:

  • All libraries are encouraged to update their holdings online using the Serial Holdings functions within DOCLINE. This is the best way to ensure consistently up-to-date holdings.
  • In an effort to relieve libraries from having to key their holdings information into multiple systems, NLM outputs data from DOCLINE Serial Holdings to external systems. NLM currently provides output of data from SERHOLD to OCLC and also outputs union lists in html and delimited formats and individual library holdings data in html, delimited, and MARC 21 formats.
