CDC Stacks is Live!

Posted by on September 12th, 2012 Posted in: All Posts

To better serve the information needs associated with public health, the CDC has developed a free, comprehensive, digital repository for all CDC literature and research known as CDC Stacks. Since public health information needs are so varied, digital collections were brought in from across the CDC and can now be searched and discovered via one user interface. The goals of transparency and accountability fueled the push for this repository, as the public has paid for the creation of these publications and should therefore be able to access them for free. Lt. Robert Swain, who received his MLIS degree from the University of Alabama, was the driving force behind this project. As the website notes, “CDC Stacks provides access to current CDC research and literature such as the Open Access Collection. In addition, CDC Stacks offers a historical perspective that was previously not available, such as the first 30 volumes of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.” The public can “search the full text of all documents, browse journals by public health subjects, and explore curated collections of documents on relevant topics” Explore it for yourself at To hear the NN/LM SE/A’s Beyond the SEA webinar recording of Lt Robert Swain discussing CDC Stacks, go here:
