MCH Knowledge Base and Library Collection

For over 30 years, NCEMCH has served as a cornerstone of the professional knowledge base in the field. The Center has operated national initiatives such as the National Consortium to Advance Education and Public Policy Development in MCH and the National Education and Information Project and focused projects such as the MCH Navigator and National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep. Through work on projects such as the MCH Library, the Title V Information System, and MCH/Medicaid Coordination, faculty and staff have developed information products on key topics in MCH.

The following toolkits, resource guides (including knowledge paths), and briefs (family, resource, and evidence) contain recent, high quality materials for staying abreast of new developments and conducting further research. These resources include links to websites, electronic publications, databases, discussion groups, and other materials.

Please choose the type of resource needed to access information:

Housing the Knowledge Base

NCEMCH maintains the Olivia K. Pickett Collection of MCH Resources that consists of an extensive aggregation of print and full-text materials from projects and repositories such as the Mary C. Egan MCH Library, the National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep, the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center, the MCH Navigator, Bright Futures, the Healthy Start National Resource Center, and the Title V Information System. Currently, this collection is closed to the public, but serves a critical role in equipping NCEMCH faculty and staff with resources to respond to the needs of the MCH community.
