Announcing a revamped HazLit and a redesigned Web site
New all-hazards online library search engine
Over the years HazLit, the Natural Hazards Center's online bibliographic database, has served countless researchers and practitioners in locating resources on human adaptation to natural hazards and disasters. Now, thanks to a grant from the Public Entity Risk Institute, members of the hazards community can more directly access information on the books, reports, periodicals, videos, and CD-ROMs available in the center's library.
At the revamped HazLit Web site, www.colorado.edu/hazards/library, users will find an overall description of the library and its services, instructions for using HazLit, links to other disaster-related libraries and information centers, and a link enabling users to e-mail library staff with disaster-related questions. Most importantly, HazLit is currently equipped with expanded search capabilities that allow simple and complex searches based on author, title, date of publication, and keywords. In addition to the many annotated database records, HazLit also provides direct links to several online documents. Users will see a marked improvement in the speed and convenience of the new database.
The Natural Hazards Center Library is committed to assisting hazards researchers and practitioners in acquiring the information they need to do their jobs. We welcome feedback regarding HazLit and other library services.
