NLM LocatorPlus Bibliographic Data Addition/Modification Form: Use New Online Version for DOCLINE Reporting

Boehr D. NLM LocatorPlus Bibliographic Data Addition/Modification Form: Use New Online Version for DOCLINE Reporting. NLM Tech Bull. 2015 Sep-Oct;(406):e4.

2015 September 16 [posted]

On October 1, 2015, NLM will implement a new method for requesting changes or additions to bibliographic data in LocatorPlus for DOCLINE reporting. 

The paper-based request form, NLM LocatorPlus Bibliographic Data Addition/Modification Form, will be replaced by a new online request form, DOCLINE Journals Data Addition/Modification Form

There will be a permanent redirect to the new form.

Requesters should fill out the form with the required and other relevant information.  Supporting documentation may be attached.  When the form is complete, click the "Send Message" button to submit the request.  Requesters will receive an automated receipt confirmation via email.  Another email will be sent when the request has been processed and completed by NLM.  

DOCLINE users should begin using the online request form on October 1, 2015.  New requests for bibliographic changes and additions must be submitted online. Requests using the paper form, sent by mail or fax, or requests sent to NLM customer service, will not be accepted after October 15, 2015, and will be returned to the sender.  NLM anticipates that this change will allow for speedier processing of requests and more accurate data in LocatorPlus and the NLM Catalog.

Please note that the policy for addition of journal titles to LocatorPlus has not changed. For further details, see the NLM Policy Statement on the Addition of Non-NLM Titles to the NLM LocatorPlus Database for DOCLINE Reporting.
