To Use Loansome Doc

When you are searching PubMed on the Internet, be sure to consult the online information for most efficient searching. When you find a PubMed article you like, mark it by clicking in the box near the citation. A check mark will appear. When your search is complete, mark the items you wish to order, Click on SEND TO, and choose ORDER from the drop down box.. If you have completed a service agreement and need to register, you may do so from here. You will supply your own password during registration and should record it in a secure place. If you have already registered, simply enter your e-mail address and password.

Designate preferred delivery method. Mail, pick-up or e-mail is available to all patrons. Note that e-mail services such as Hotmail or Yahoo have mailboxes too small to receive large e-mail files. Most files can be delivered as PDFs or TIFFs. Fax delivery may not be an option for foreign patrons.

Fill in other fields as necessary. If your maximum cost is sufficient (see our charges below) and we are unable to fill your request from our collection, we can refer your request to other medical libraries. (This is a referral. When you receive the article, we will take care of the filling library's invoice by charging your account.) When you have placed your order, be sure to make a copy for your records, in case you need to communicate with us about the request. You may do your original registration, check the status of your request or change your registration information at https://docline.gov/loansome/login.cfm.Your request will be sent by the National Library of Medicine computers to our mailbox to be downloaded the next morning.
