The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has announced that Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) has been activated to support healthcare professionals working on the response to the earthquake in Nepal.
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 fifth time the EAI has been activated. Previously support was provided following the earthquake and subsequent cholera epidemic in Haiti; flooding in Pakistan; the earthquake and tsunami in Japan; and the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
