Gale Provides Free Access to H1N1 Information

from Gale:

Gale is providing free access to Global Issues in Context and dozens of eBooks from the Gale Virtual Reference Library in an effort to make reliable information regarding the H1N1 virus, commonly known as the swine flu, available. Librarians can install a free widget - found at www.gale.cengage.com/flu/ to their homepage, Facebook page or blog.

This free widget will be available to your community for as long as H1N1 is considered a national emergency. We will attempt to notify all accounts prior to the trial's expiration.

EBSCO's Continuous Pandemic H1N1 Coverage

from EBSCO:

Early in September, as public concern about Pandemic H1N1 and the upcoming flu season began to grow, the medical and nursing editors from EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) responded by offering the latest evidence-based, flu-related information for free.

As the pandemic expands, we continue to offer free flu information resources, located at www.ebscohost.com/flu. We are pleased to provide public support via continuously updated, evidence-based clinical information from DynaMed and Nursing Reference Center, EBSCO's clinical and nursing point-of-care databases, along with patient education information in 17 languages from Patient Education Reference Center. Please visit this site often, post links to the site on your home page, and feel free to share, post, and email this link to your colleagues, patrons, family and friends.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank those who have provided such positive feedback from this effort. To learn about EBSCO's editorial processes for systematically identifying, evaluating and selecting evidence, visit this page.
