Open Source Media
This collection of documents, videos, and other resources are “open source,” meaning that they are freely available on the internet and anyone may use them. The vast majority of scientific literature is located in subscription-only databases. Some government grant-funded scientific literature is available free of charge, but many medical journals cost thousands of dollars per year. Access to these databases is usually limited to university research libraries. This portion of the ECHO website was funded by an award from the National Library of Medicine’s National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM).
Developed resources reported in this website are supported by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH) under cooperative agreement number 1UG4LM012346. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.
These resources have been selected by experienced public health librarians for merit as well as currency for use by physicians and allied health professions, and for patient education. Use this search box as you would use an open web search tool. Please note that these digital documents and audio-visual items were catalogued using the search terms of the National Library of Medicine and the Library of Congress, where “narcotics” is the preferred term for opioids, so limiting a subject heading search to “opioids” will not retrieve every item. A keyword search for “opioid” will find the term in the title or abstract.
