To switch to using a Login.gov account with your current DOCLINE username:

  1. Go to the Login.gov website and create a new Login.gov account, using the email address that matches your existing DOCLINE username (ex: libdoxetc@sampleemail.com).  

  2. Submit a Help Desk ticket with NLM to have your DOCLINE user account cleared of the prior stored login method, so that you can use Login.gov instead.

NOTE: If you create a Login.gov account with an email that doesn’t match your DOCLINE username address, you must request a new matching DOCLINE user account from DOCLINE Support at your Regional Medical Library or NLM.

Once your new Login.gov account is set up, and prior log in data cleared from DOCLINE by NLM, use these steps for signing into DOCLINE.

  1. Go to DOCLINE.gov website

  2. Click the Login to DOCLINE button

  3. Click Research Organization button on the NIH Sign In page

  4. Find and select Login.gov in the search box/list of Research Organizations

  5. Proceed through Login.gov steps
