ebrary Offers Free Breast Cancer Searchable Information Center

ebrary has announced that it has collaborated with librarians from other organizations to create an open access database of breast cancer publications in honor of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The site is available at

ebrary’s Breast Cancer Searchable Information Center features a range of authoritative fact sheets, posters, and other materials from government agencies such as the National Cancer Institute, National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.), Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Women's Health, and other authoritative sources.  

The site was created using DASH! (Data Sharing, Fast), ebrary’s do-it-yourself e-publishing tool which is included with many of the company’s e-book products and services. Organizations that wish to contribute information to ebrary’s Breast Cancer Searchable Information Center may receive a complimentary DASH! account to upload and integrate their documents, provided they have copyrights.

“Breast cancer strikes over 1.3 million women around the globe each year and is the leading cause of cancer death in women, according to the American Cancer Society,” said Christopher Warnock, CEO of ebrary. “We hope that by using our technology to make some of the most important information contained within government documents more discoverable, and by making DASH! available to others who wish to contribute relevant materials, we can provide a helpful resource for anyone who needs information on this prevalent disease.”

ebrary’s Breast Cancer Searchable Information Center is just one of a growing number of open access collections created by ebrary staff and customers. For a listing of additional databases visit
