    • + Strategies to Obtain Journal Articles
      • Alumni Services - Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University An example of a school of public health's alumni services page that talks about library resource access. Your school may have a similar web page.
      • American Journal of Public Health - (American Public Health Association (APHA) Current two years are free for members/subscribers only. Older issues are available free online in PubMedCentral. Be sure to activate the online access for the subscriptions to which you are entitled.
      • Area Health Education Centers Directory Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) provide continuing education based on the recent literature. Many AHECs also have libraries or resource centers.
      • Blue Trunk Libraries The collection, which is organized according to major subjects, contains more than one hundred books on medicine and public health. Blue Trunk Libraries are available in English, French, Portuguese, and Arabic.
      • College and University Libraries Academic libraries generally are included in WorldCat or have their own online catalog on their website. State university or community college libraries are usually open to the public living or working within that state. Look for a community college with health training programs. Those with EMS Training Programs may have disaster preparedness journals, for example. Most libraries have print subscriptions or license electronic journals to allow on site use. Friends of the Library memberships may be available for a reasonable charge and may allow you to check out materials or receive other information services.
      • College of Medicine Voluntary Faculty Example of library services available to voluntary faculty involved in teaching health professional students. Maintain an adjunct faculty role or offer to precept students. The students will have remote access to the university resources, and the academic institution may also be able to provide resources or services to you as a preceptor depending on their licensing arrangements.
      • Council on Education for Public Health The list of accredited Schools of Public Health and Public Health Programs contains the website for each school. See if your school has special benefits for alumni by checking the public health program site or going directly to the academic library site.
      • Directory of National Network of Libraries of Medicine Members Searchable directory of a nationwide network of health science libraries and information centers. The directory can be searched by state, type of library, and by services offered to the public including reference services, database search training, and delivery of full text journal articles.
      • Global Index Medicus The Global Index Medicus provides access to information and scientific evidence on health, particularly in developing regions. It is designed to create a global space to promote and connect local, national, regional and international flows of information on health.
      • HINARI Access to Research in Health Programme The HINARI Programme, a collaboration between the World Health Organization and major publishers, enables low- and middle- income countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature including journals (in 30 different languages), e-books, and other information resources.
      • Law Libraries Law librarians are experts in finding legal information to support policy making and cases. Law libraries are often open to the public for legal research. Use of resources such as Lexis-Nexis and Westlaw is generally restricted, but a wealth of other information in environmental and occupational health, infectious disease control, animal control and other topics with legal components is available.
      • National Network of Libraries of Medicine NN/LM Your regional medical library can help you locate any type of library of figure out what options you have to efficiently find access to the information you need. The NN/LM also provides training on how to use information resources such as PubMed.
      • Public Libraries Public library subscriptions and services may include remote access to collections of full-text journals and newspaper articles. Interlibrary loan may be available at no charge or a minimal cost. Library cards are generally available to those who live or work in the jurisdiction at no charge.
      • SOPHE Journals and Publications Be sure to activate the online access for the subscriptions to which you are entitled. Other related publications may be offered at discounted rates.
      • State Libraries
      • WorldCat WorldCat lets you search the collections of libraries in your community and around the world. You can search for journals, books, CDs, videos, and digital content in multiple languages. You can also find a library near you if the library has a profile in the WorldCat Registry. Note: Many hospital libraries do not appear in Worldcat, so you may need to call your closest hospital library to see if they have what you need.
