My Basket--Requesting POPLINE Documents



Users in low- and middle-income countries can use the POPLINE My Basket to simplify ordering full-text POPLINE documents. This feature allows those users to make a preliminary selection of documents, which can be viewed and edited before submitting a final request. The My Basket icon appears at the far right end of the main POPLINE navigation bar.


When you add an item to My Basket, it will be saved there until you're ready to submit your request. Once you have added 1 or more documents to My Basket, you can open your basket to view and edit your selection.
