NLM Activates Emergency Access Resources

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has activated the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) in support of medical efforts in the Philippines and surrounding areas following the devastating typhoon.  The Emergency Access Initiative  provides  free access to full-text articles from over 650 biomedical serial titles and over 4,000 reference books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries affected by disasters.

The Emergency Access Initiative serves as a temporary collection replacement and/or supplement for libraries affected by disasters that need to continue to serve medical staff and affiliated users.  It is also intended for medical personnel responding to the specified disaster.  EAI is not an open access collection – it is only intended for those affected by the disaster or assisting the affected population.

Access the collection @ Emergency Access Initiative.

For questions regarding the Emergency Access Initiative, please email custserv@nlm.nih.gov or call 1-888-346-3656 in the United States, or 301-594-5983 internationally.
