   One Laptop Per Child to receive contribution for each ClinicalKey search
         conducted at Medical Library Association conference, May 4-7

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, today announced a charitable donation to
One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization whose mission is to
help provide every child in the world access to a modern education.

For each search made on ClinicalKey at Elsevier's booth (#106) at the Medical
Library Association Annual (MLA) Meeting and Exhibition (May 4-7, Boston),
Elsevier will donate $1 toward the purchase of up to 50 laptops for OLPC.
ClinicalKey is Elsevier's "clinical insight engine" which combines an
extensive collection of medical content and a sophisticated search engine to
provide clinicians with smarter, faster clinical answers.

"ClinicalKey shares OLPC's vision of providing modern information connections
for a modern education," said Diane Bartoli, Senior Vice President and General
Manager for Elsevier's clinical solutions business. "We understand investing
in education now is one way to help ensure excellence in healthcare in the
future, a mission that's close to our hearts. The children who receive these
laptops may well become ClinicalKey users at some point, and we're honored to
play some role in helping them on that journey."

OLPC works to empower the world's poorest children through education,
providing those in need with rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptops.
In OLPC's first years, approximately two million previously marginalized
children were given the opportunity to learn and transform their communities.

"With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own
education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to
each other, to the world and to a brighter future," said Rodrigo Arboleda,
Chairman and CEO of OLPC. "Laptops are both a window and a tool: a window out
to the world and a tool with which to think. They are a wonderful way for all
children to learn through independent interaction and exploration."

To help contribute to One Laptop Per Child and learn more about ClinicalKey,
simply come search on ClinicalKey in the Elsevier booth (#106) at the MLA
annual meeting.
