Include PubMed IDs and PubMed Central IDs in data sent to ILL and for bibliographic softwoare
Include PubMed IDs and PubMed Central IDs in the metadata that is sent to the ILL form upon integration. In addition, include PMIDs and PMCIDs with other exports, for example, to bibliographic management software.
Thanks Thomas! Just a note that we already *do* pass along DOI's when available to ILL and Bibliographic Software, just not PubMed ID's at the moment.

Yes, that would be very helpful. In addition to PMIDs, whenever available, also include DOIs. Not all journals, e.g. Chemistry journals, are indexed in Pubmed. Main thing a unique ID is associated as part of the article meta information. This makes ordering, finding articles in other databases, even adding to some of the bibliographic software so much easier.
