I want to give you a quick update on the National Library of Medicine's
Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) and ask you for your help.
The Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) is a partnership of the National
Library of Medicine, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, and
the Professional/Scholarly Publishing Division of the Association of
American Publishers. EAI provides free access to full text articles from
major biomedicine titles to healthcare professionals, librarians, and
the public in the United States affected by disasters.
Based upon initial feedback, NLM has made revisions to the EAI web site
and is currently receiving additional feedback from staff at each of the
Regional Medical Libraries. NLM has started to receive agreements from
publishers on selected titles. As the agreements arrive, these titles
are being added to the list of available titles (in the EAI collection )
on the web site and within PubMed.
NLM has asked us to identify possible usability test subjects from the
Region for the EAI site. The usability test would be done remotely via
a Adobe Connect session in mid to late March, and would take about 15-20
minutes. NLM is looking for users in the target audience for the EAI
site - health care professionals and librarians - and would like to test
with more health care professionals than librarians under the assumption
that this would be the greater percentage of real-life users.
If you are interested in serving as a tester and/or can identify health
care professionals from your institution who would be willing to assist
NLM with this important initiative, please contact us at
psr-nnlm at library.ucla.edu by no later than Monday, March 9, 2009.
With your input, the web site will be the best it can be...providing a
lifeline in the event of an emergency!
