WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: The Disaster Information Specialist monthly webinar is free and open to everyone – please spread the word and invite others in your organizations, send to your email lists, and post to your social media accounts.
TOPIC and SPEAKERS: Tania Bardyn and her team from the University of Washington Health Sciences Library will present about their current Disaster Health Information Outreach and Collaboration Project. The Library, in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health, Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response and the Washington State Emergency Management Division, developed a mobile application (app) for Android devices called Response & Recovery App in Washington (RRAIN Washington) to improve access to National Library of Medicine (NLM) disaster information resources in Washington State. This is a follow-on project to the RRAIN app created in 2014 for iPhone and iPad devices.
Also, Sarah Carnes, a virtual intern with the NLM Disaster Information Management Research Center, will present about her project “Design and Delivery of an Outreach Strategy to Increase Awareness of Disaster Information Resources.” She will present on the process she used to design a program for Massachusetts public libraries to increase awareness and use of disaster information resources. She will also discuss how she delivered the strategy and synthesized their feedback to refine the strategy and accompanying products.
