NLM's Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) Activated in Response to Recent Hurricanes and Mexico Earthquakes



NEW YORK, September 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, is providing free access online to health and disaster-related journals through the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI), a program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in partnership with the U.S. National Library of Medicine, for healthcare professionals and libraries.

The NLM activated the EAI in response to the recent Hurricanes Irma, Harvey and Maria which devastated parts of Texas, Florida, South Carolina and Louisiana and several Caribbean islands, as well as the recent earthquakes in Mexico.

The EAI is a partnership between NLM and many participating publishers, including Elsevier, 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 that need to continue to serve medical staff and affiliated users. It is also intended for medical personnel responding to the specified disaster.

This is the eighth time the EAI has been activated, including for the earthquake in Haiti; flooding in Pakistan; the cholera epidemic in Haiti; the earthquake and tsunami in Japan; the typhoon in the Philippines; the Ebola outbreak in West Africa; and the earthquake in Nepal.

In addition to Elsevier's collection of more than 500 health and medical journals, Elsevier has added the following journals more specifically related to disaster and environmental science:

If you know of a library or organization involved in healthcare efforts in response to the hurricanes in the southeastern United States and Caribbean, please let them know of this service.
