The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world's largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, collects, preserves, and makes available to the public information about health, medicine, and the biomedical sciences. To continue fulfilling this mission, NLM is collecting and archiving related Web content, which also serves to document the histories of health and medicine.
A selective collection of websites archived by the National Library of Medicine on the current opioid epidemic in the United States, declared a public health emergency in October 2017. Archived content includes websites and social media documenting a wide range of responses to and perspectives on the epidemic, including voices from of the medical and public health communities, the addiction research, policymakers and policy reformers, law enforcement, and the addicted and their families and communities. Archived websites are primarily in English. NLM will continue to develop, review, describe, and add content to the collection.
