NLM Awardees: Disaster Health Information Outreach and Collaboration Project 2011

2011 project sites

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is funding seven Disaster Health Information Outreach and Collaboration Projects in a new program which began September 2011. The program supports efforts of libraries and other organizations to work together to improve use of disaster medicine and public health information by agencies working in any phase of all-hazards management.

Congratulations to the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center in Albuquerque, NM!

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center will partner with the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Library and  Informatics Center and University of New Mexico Center for Disaster Medicine. The project will develop a framework for extending the role of librarians and informationists in providing access to the resources of the National Library of Medicine and other federal and state sources to the National Disaster Medical System and other federal response entities. The project will also develop and implement processes for improving local emergency responders’ ready access to quality disaster management information at time of need.
