Loansome Doc Service
Loansome Doc is the National Library of Medicine’s document delivery service. Users of PubMed have the option of ordering citations when searching. Requests are transmitted to MSU’s Document Delivery Service through DOCLINE from the National Library of Medicine. If an item is not owned, the requests for MSU Faculty and Staff will be sent on through the InterLibrary Loan process to another library.
