From the GMR: Disaster Stories Posted to the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness Toolkit

Please see the following message forwarded from NLM.
Last year, several NN/LM librarians from across the United States generously shared their personal stories about disaster or emergency situations with Robin Featherstone, an National Library of Medicine (NLM) Associate Fellow. As was originally planned, a Web site has been created to provide a platform for sharing these stories.

The site I created includes an individual link for each of the stories, the ability for others to comment on posted stories, and a Google map, which will help visualization of the diversity among the stories. By clicking on each of the individual icons on the Google Map, you will be linked to the individual stories. The Library Disaster Stories site is a part of the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit and can be found here: http://nnlm.gov/ep/lessons-learnedstories-told/

We hope you will enjoy the site and share it with your colleagues. Soon, all of the stories will be individually listed under the Google Map. In addition, a ‚ÄúSubmit Your Own Story‚Ä? function will be added, which will open up the possibilities of this site. We are very appreciative of the librarians who have shared their stories and hope that this site will encourage others to share their experiences.

If you have questions about the site or the submission of stories, you may contact Dan Wilson (editor of the NN/LM Emergency Preparedness & Response Toolkit) at dtw2t@eservices.virginia.edu or Susan Yowell (project assistant) at ssy2n@virginia.edu.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Emily Vardell
NLM Associate Fellow 2007-08
