Haiti Earthquake – NLM Information Resources
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has an Earthquake topic page on MedlinePlus in English, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/earthquakes.html, and in Spanish, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/spanish/earthquakes.html, which may be useful for general background information or for explaining earthquakes to children.
The NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center can assist librarians who are providing information services to staff at their institutions as their hospital, university, military unit, etc. responds to the earthquake. Librarians can subscribe to, post information, and ask questions on NLM’s Disaster Information Outreach Listserv, http://disaster.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/dimrclistserv.html.
