Publishers join NLM initiative to launch Emergency Access Initiative, granting free access to books and journals for libraries impacted by hurricanes Harvey and Irma
- 18 Sep 2017

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has activated the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) in response to Hurricanes Irma and Harvey which devastated Florida and several Caribbean islands, as well as parts of South Carolina, Texas, and Louisiana.

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 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.

This is the eighth time the EAI has been activated. Previously support was provided following the earthquake in Haiti; flooding in Pakistan; the cholera epidemic in Haiti; the earthquake&tsunami in Japan; the typhoon in the Philippines; the Ebola outbreak in West Africa; and the earthquake in Nepal.

The numerous participating publishers supporting NLM in this initiative include: 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.

HighWire Press announces platform-wide rollout of Campus-Activated Subscriber Access
- 15 Sep 2017

HighWire Press, Inc., the strategic partner and platform provider for world-leading scholarly publishers and societies, has announced the platform-wide rollout of Campus-Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) on its Intelligent Platform, in cooperation with Google Scholar. CASA enables seamless off-campus and mobile access to subscribed scholarly content. With CASA, off-campus and mobile users may access their library's subscriptions just as easily as when they are on campus.

A faster, easier user experience to subscription content from publishers will help libraries serve their patrons and will provide researchers with legitimate access to authorised versions, without using Sci-Hub as a work around to off-campus barriers. CASA access is correctly attributed to the subscribing institution, so that COUNTER reporting reflects these new usage opportunities.

HighWire will introduce CASA at Charleston and the STM London Innovation meetings later this year. CASA supports industry-wide initiatives to improve access to resources while maintaining requirements of licensing agreements and copyright laws.
