The National Library of Medicine released a new design for the Disaster Information Management Research Center website & the Disaster Lit® database. The new design improves access to key resources on natural and man-made disasters, as well as public health emergencies such as emerging infectious diseases.
The Disaster Lit database complements PubMed with information from hundreds of sources concerning disasters and public health emergencies. Over 14,000 reports, guidelines, training courses, websites, etc., from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities, & more are included in Disaster Lit.
