National Library of Medicine Launches Emergency Access Initiative, Granting Free Access to Books and Journals for Those Responding to Typhoon Haiyan

“The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) has been activated in support of medical efforts in the Philippines and surrounding area following the devastating typhoon. The EAI is a collaborative partnership between NLM and participating publishers to provide free access to full-text from over 650 biomedical journals and over 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 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.” (via National Library of Medicine)
