The National Library of Medicine announces the activation of the 
Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) in support of medical efforts in the 
Philippines and surrounding areas following the devastating typhoon.The 
Emergency Access Initiative is a collaborative partnership between NLM 
and participating publishers to provide free access to full-text 
articles from over 650 biomedical serial titles and over 4,000 reference 
books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries 
affected by disasters.

The Emergency Access Initiative 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.If your 
library is working with a library or organization involved in relief 
efforts in the Philippines or other affected areas, please let them know 
of this service.
