Online Payment of ILL Invoices is Here!
Posted On: Monday, October 31, 2016 - 15:03 by Beverly Murphy

As of November 1, 2016, you can pay your invoice for Interlibrary Loans (ILLs) online at https://payments.mclibrary.duke.edu/ill using a credit card. Just enter the invoice number, payment amount, and billing information.  This is a secure payment system which uses DukePay and meets all of Duke’s criteria for handling online credit card payments.

Copies from any of the Duke Library collections are still free to the Duke community. Duke patrons will only receive an invoice for a journal article if we have to get it from a non-Duke library. 

In early 2017, we hope to launch online payments by faculty and staff for fines and lost books, as well as links for giving...

UpToDate Remote Access Authentication
Posted On: Monday, December 21, 2015 - 17:23 by Brandi Tuttle

[Note: this post is about re-verifying your Duke affiliation for remote access to UpToDate and not the usual way to use UpToDate. Click here to access UpToDate.]

UpToDate has changed its remote access authentication policy requiring Duke users to log into UpToDate from the Duke network from every 30 days to every 90 days.   Hopefully this will help those working or studying away from Duke for short periods of time to easily retain access to this important resource.   

Have you gotten an email from UpToDate Support lately with the subject line "Your remote access to UpToDate has lapsed"? If you downloaded the UpToDate mobile...

Proposed Journal Cancellations
Posted On: Friday, October 30, 2015 - 01:35 by Emma Cryer

Since the costs of journal subscriptions rise by 6% to 10% every year, we have to make difficult decisions about what to keep and what to cancel.  We look at usage, cost, and other factors.  We also compare titles based on cost per use of all downloaded journal articles.

The following titles are  proposed cancellations for 2016 based on high cost and low use, thereby having high cost per use as compared to hundreds of other titles. Please send any concerns about these cancellations to: emma.cryer@duke.edu.

Finding Print Books Is Now Easier!
Posted On: Friday, June 5, 2015 - 10:39 by Beverly Murphy

All of our health and medical books are now integrated into one large collection, regardless of publication date! The merged collection starts in Room 102F (old open book stacks) with call numbers A-WF and flows into Room 102C with call numbers WG-Z. Oversize books are at the end of the collection, along with our recreational reading materials in the Engel Collection.

We will now refer to these collection areas as the STACKS and have signs guiding you between the areas. Our older materials (pre-1995) will remain in off-site stacks in the Library Service Center and can be easily recalled through the online catalog and delivered to our Library.

We hope this new “integrated” collection will make it easier to find both old and new materials...

NIH Researchers - New Look for NIHMS!
Posted On: Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 14:38 by Patricia Thibodeau

The old NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System got a facelift in January 2015. NIHMS is used to deposit and approve research manuscripts  funded by NIH and accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.

In addition to a new, fresh Web page design, NIH is streamlining the manuscript submission process, as well as the login procedures. The homepage now has a graphic overview of the process. Just hover over the steps for more information or links to more details.

When you enter the system, you will find a list of your manuscripts with the status for each. A PI or author must still provide the initial and final approvals steps, but there are updated...
