National Library of of Medicine: Disaster Information Management Research Center

·http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/

Based at the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the core purpose of the Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIRMC) is "to develop and provide access to health information resources and technology for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery." It's an ambitious mission, but this site provides ample material for public health experts, journalists, scholars, and the general public. First-time visitors should look over the In the Spotlight area to learn about everything from disaster apps to resources about coping with disasters, violence, or other traumatic events. The New Documents area offers works that deal with biodefense, food contamination events, and nuclear terrorism response plans. Finally, additional information on a range of topics can be found on the left-hand side of the homepage in areas that include Disaster Health Literature and Librarians & Disasters.[KMG] From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2013. https://www.scout.wisc.edu/
