Inter-library loan delays

As of Thursday, February 28, 2019, DOCLINE, the primary software used by medical libraries to make inter-library loan requests, is being upgraded by the National Library of Medicine.

This will result in a slowdown in the fulfillment of inter-library loan in general over the next few months as libraries across the country adapt to the new version of DOCLINE, as well as acquire and learn 3rd party software compatible with it.

We will do our best to submit and fulfill requests in a timely manner, but expect delays in delivery of documents, and try to plan accordingly.
