The AHEC Digital Library (ADL) is a statewide electronic network of resources gathered to support NC healthcare professionals in obtaining current information. The ADL includes collections of specific health specialty resources with access to full-text journals and textbooks and searchable databases, including Medline, CINAHL, and The Cochrane Collection of Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews. 

Individuals may access the ADL in several ways:

  • A free version with limited resources is available to all individuals at http://library.ncahec.net
  • Many NC hospitals have institutional ADL subscriptions for their employees and medical staff. NC healthcare professionals may purchase yearly memberships for $250 per individual.
  • Less than the cost of a single journal subscription, memberships provide access to the full scope of licensed ADL resources 24/7.

To check your eligibility or to apply for a free 30-day trial of the ADL, complete this form.
