Elsevier ClinicalKey to Help Donate Laptops to Children Around the World
Date:5/1/2013

PHILADELPHIA, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

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. "We understand investing in education now is one way to help ensure excellence in healthcare in the future, a mission that's close to our hearts. 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.

"With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future," said Rodrigo Arboleda , Chairman and CEO of OLPC. "Laptops are both a window and a tool: a window out to the world and a tool with which to think. They are a wonderful way for all children to learn through independent interaction and exploration."

To help contribute to One Laptop Per Child and learn more about ClinicalKey, simply come search on ClinicalKey in the Elsevier booth (#106) at the MLA annual meeting.
