Resources for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Public Health Agencies

Resource Access

Staff at State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial (STLT) Public Health Agencies have several options for obtaining library resources.  Most of the options listed below are available at no cost.

CDC Library access for CDC assignees

Assignees from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working at STLT public health agencies can access resources from the Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library (CDC Library) using CDC login credentials to log into the CDC intranet.  This includes CDC assignees such as Epidemic Intelligence Service officers, Public Health Associate Program fellows, and Career Epidemiology Field Officers.

NLM Public Health Digital Library

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Public Health Digital Library (PHDL) provides access to e-journals, e-books, and databases on an annual fee basis. State and local health departments are eligible to participate in the PHDL. They must have a partner library that provides articles to users when the article is not part of the PHDL collection.
