The Disaster Information Specialist monthly meeting is open to all and may be attended in-person or by Adobe Connect. The meeting will be held Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 1:30 PM ET.
We will be launching and demonstrating the NEW National Library of Medicine (NLM) Disaster Information Management Research Center’s topic page “Disaster Apps and Mobile-Optimized Web Pages” at the meeting. As part of the launch, the meeting will feature a presentation on disaster-related mobile tools and apps by NLM’s Siobhan Champ-Blackwell and Jamie Peacock. They will cover some of the basics of mobile technologies, including the difference between an app and a mobile-optimized Web site. They will also highlight some of the most useful apps and tools to have on a mobile device prior to/during emergencies and disasters.
