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
<http://www.nlm.nih.gov/journaldonation/> 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 NLMJournalDonation at mail.nih.gov
<mailto:NLMJournalDonation at mail.nih.gov> to make donations. NLM
appreciates your help with this important program.
