The National Library of Medicine announces the activation of the
Emergency Access Initiative in support of medical efforts in the
Philippines and surrounding areas following the devastating typhoon.
The Emergency Access Initiative is a collaborative partnership between
NLM and participating publishers to provide 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. If your
library is working with a library or organization involved in relief
efforts in the Philippines or other affected areas, please let them
know of this service.
