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
help by donating print volumes that you no longer wish to retain.  If
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
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
For some titles, the system cannot do an automatic check on what volumes
needed.  In these cases, the system will ask you to enter the volumes
can donate, and NLM will send you an email when we determine which
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

help with this important program.
