The Emergency Access Initiative brings a full-text electronic health information collection to those affected by or assisting the populations affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.
The EAI is in effect through
October 14 November 14th!
650 biomedical journals and more than 4,000 ebooks have been made available for the current period (ending November 14th) as a supplement for libraries and health care responding to the disaster. Public Health Digital Library users have these additional resources in close reach to information support for clinical, toxicological, prevention, and population based health problem-solving.
While the Public Health Digital Library might already include some of these resources, the Emergency Access Initiative is made available through the following publishers: American Academy of Pediatrics, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, American College of Physicians, American Medical Association, American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists, American Society for Microbiology Press, B.C. Decker, BMJ, Cambridge University Press, EBSCOHost, Elsevier, FA Davis, Mary Ann Liebert, Massachusetts Medical Society, McGraw-Hill, Merck Publishing, Oxford University Press, People’s Medical Publishing House, Springer, Taylor & Francis, University of Chicago Press, Wiley and Wolters Kluwer.
PHDL users in affected areas or offering support to affected areas can use EAI Resources at https://login.eai.nlm.nih.gov/menu. You’ll login via a character recognition box and be taken to a page to Agree to the User Agreement. The next page will link to the Emergency Access Initiative Resources. You can browse the list of journals, books and online databases. You can also search for articles on PubMed. If you’ve set up to find PHDL articles through MyNCBI, you can view your results in Abstract Format to identify articles with the PHDL and the FULL TEXT FREE icons.
The guidelines for activation of EAI are a regional disaster that disrupts access to biomedical literature for health care professionals, students, and other users of multiple health science libraries in the United States for an extended period. A small team of NLM, publisher, and library staff determine if an event necessitates activation of the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI). If you are affected by the recent disasters or offering support to areas affected by the disasters, EAI Resources are available to you.
