New NLM Journal Donation Program

NLM is launching a new program to ensure that its holdings of journals,
indexes, and other serials are as complete as possible.  Your library can
help by donating print volumes that you no longer wish to retain.  If you
are a DOCLINE library, use the new Web based system at  to find out what NLM needs.

The system is easy to use.  All you need is a list of the titles and
volumes you are planning to discard.  You can search by title words or
phrases or by ISSN.  The system searches your DOCLINE holdings so titles
are retrieved quickly.  If NLM does not need any volumes of a title, the
system notifies you immediately.   If NLM needs volumes, the system
displays a list of them, and you just click on the volumes you will donate.
For some titles, the system cannot do an automatic check on what volumes
are needed.  In these cases, the system will ask you to enter the volumes
you can donate, and NLM will send you an email when we determine which
volumes we need.  You submit your offer electronically from the system.
You can print your offer or save it to an Excel file.  NLM will send an
email to confirm receipt of your offer and to provide instructions on how
to have NLM pay for shipping.

If you are not a DOCLINE library, please contact us at 301-496-0081 or at
[log in to unmask] to make donations.   NLM appreciates your
help with this important program.
