ebrary Launches Free Natural Disaster Research Center

ebrary (www.ebrary.com), a provider of digital content products and technologies, announced that it has created a free, publicly available research center featuring hundreds of important government documents related to natural disasters and extreme weather (http://site.ebrary.com/lib/disaster/home.action).

"Our hearts go out to all of the people who are suffering and experiencing hardships in light of the recent earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and others who have been impacted by the many natural disasters and extreme weather that occur in the world each year," said Christopher Warnock, CEO of ebrary. "To help make a difference, our employees gathered authoritative, public domain information from government websites, and using our system, created a highly interactive, searchable database. We hope that people around the world find this a valuable resource, and we encourage our customers to share this information with their students, employees, and patrons."

Using DASH! (Data Sharing, Fast) and other ebrary services, the ebrary staff was able to very quickly and easily aggregate PDF content and develop the new Natural Disaster and Extreme Weather Searchable Information Center. ebrary's new site is one of a series of research centers that the company's employees are building on topics that are important to them. Last November, ebrary staff created the H1N1 Searchable Information Center, which is freely available at http://h1n1.ebrary.com/home.action. The company plans to launch several additional sites this year and welcomes input and suggestions.
