One Laptop Per Child to receive contribution for each ClinicalKey search conducted at Medical Library Association conference, May 4-7
Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced a charitable donation to One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization whose mission is to help provide every child in the world access to a modern education.
For each search made on ClinicalKey at Elsevier's booth (#106) at the Medical Library Association Annual (MLA) Meeting and Exhibition (May 4-7, Boston), Elsevier will donate $1 toward the purchase of up to 50 laptops for OLPC. ClinicalKey is Elsevier's "clinical insight engine" which combines an extensive collection of medical content and a sophisticated search engine to provide clinicians with smarter, faster clinical answers.
"ClinicalKey shares OLPC's vision of providing modern information connections for a modern education," said Diane Bartoli , Senior Vice President and General Manager for Elsevier's clinical solutions business.

The children who receive these laptops may well become ClinicalKey users at some point, and we're honored to play some role in helping them on that journey."
OLPC works to empower the world's poorest children through education, providing those in need with rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptops. In OLPC's first years, approximately two million previously marginalized children were given the opportunity to learn and transform their communities.
