Subject: docline routing question

Dear Colleagues,

A  Friday question ...

Can anyone explain how/whether/if  Docline  routing  distinguishes between ELECTRONIC  and  PRINT  formats ?   I'm getting very frustrated with the number of Docline requests I receive for E-Pub-ahead-of-print articles,  when  my  holdings  specify the format I hold  as  "Print" only, as this lowers my Docline " grade"  and looks bad when I pass that information along to the higher-ups who judge the value of library services  .... I'm wondering if there's something I can do to resolve this problem.

When I receive an E-Pub-ahead-of-print  request from one of my library  patrons I prefix it to a library that indicates "Electronic" holdings  so  that other librarians, hopefully, do not experience the same problem with my docline requests.

Many thanks !
