The Emergency Access Initiative (EAI), a collaboration between National Library of Medicine (NLM) and medical publishers, povides free access to full-text content from over 650 biomedical journals and 4,000 reference books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries affected by disasters.

On September 14, in response to Hurricane Irma that devastated several Caribbean Islands and Florida, and the ongoing issues following Hurricane Harvey, the EAI was opened to assist with relief efforts from IPs registered in the US, Caribbean Islands, UK, France and other countries as needed. In less than a week, EAI activation was expanded due to the earthquake in Mexico and Hurricane Maria that added further devastation to many of the areas previously impacted by Irma.
