NLM launches emergency access initiative, granting free access to books and journals for healthcare professionals responding to earthquake in Nepal

from IAEM

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) has been activated to support healthcare professionals working on the response to the earthquake in Nepal. If you know of a library or organization involved in healthcare efforts in response to the earthquake in Nepal, please let them know of this service. The EAI is a collaborative partnership between NLM and participating publishers to provide free access to full-text from more than 650 biomedical journals and more than 4,000 reference books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries affected by disasters. It serves as a temporary collection replacement and/or supplement for libraries affected by disasters and medical personnel responding to specified disasters. EAI was activated four times in the past, including following the earthquake and subsequent cholera epidemic in Haiti, flooding in Pakistan, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Other NLM resources helpful for those working in disaster response include: Disaster Information Management Research Center (for first responders, healthcare professionals and the public); Earthquakes (for the general public); and International Health (for the general public). more
