Disaster Information Management Research Center (DMIRC)
This week’s featured emergency and disaster preparedness resource provides librarians and other healthcare information providers with information from NLM’s Specialized Services (SIS) Disaster Information Management Research Center (DMIRC). This center collects, organizes and disseminates health information resources and informatics research related to disasters of natural, accidental, or deliberate origin. DIMRC is committed to maintain access to health information during disasters for example, the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) provides temporary, free, full-text access from major biomedical journals and numerous e-books and databases following any widespread disaster that is expected to severely limit libraries’ abilities to function for at least several weeks. DIMRC also develops innovative products and services to serve health professionals and the public, conducts research to support disaster health information management and collaborates with other agencies and communities.
