DOCLINE Redesign



Borrowing and Lending coming!

Monday, March 4 - DOCLINE release 6.1

Write to the DOCLINE Team


DOCLINE 6 is online!

DOCLINE libraries are invited to log into the all-new DOCLINE to familiarize themselves with the website before ILL requesting is added with the upcoming release of DOCLINE 6.1.  Borrowing and Lending will begin the morning of March 4, 2109.  ILL requesting will end in the original DOCLINE system at noon, February 28, 2019.  (Original DOCLINE system will remain available for ILL lending-related tasks and Loansome Doc library activities through summer 2019.)

Libraries should log into DOCLINE 6 to review and update their library profile information, including Lending offerings and Borrowing settings.  Users are urged to review and update their Journal Holdings records to ensure accurate request routing in the future, after requesting ends in the legacy system.
