The National Institute of Health and the National Library of Medicine are offering a free videocast on disaster health information. As the recent tragedy in Japan has demonstrated, communities need to prepare for disasters and libraries play a crucial role in that preparation.
Registration for the Disaster Information Outreach Symposium, an event for and about information professionals meeting disaster health information needs, is currently to capacity. However, this March 29 and 30 event will be videocast. While advance registration is required to attend the symposium, it is not necessary to register in order to view the videocast.
Please see http://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?live=9836 for day 1 and http://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?live=9837 for day 2. Prior to the event, it may be helpful to visit the Web site and click “Player Software” near the top of the page to download the software necessary to view the program. A recording will be archived for later viewing following the symposium.
