I am very pleased about the recommendations for topics that need discussion on the network. One of the ways to address them is through the bulletin. In addition, I would like to add another one, educating students for disaster preparedness. In light of the the Ebola outbreak, here are some resources:
A new webpage, Ebola Outbreak 2014: Information Resources, is now available from the US National Library of Medicine (NLM) Disaster Information Management Research Center. The resources on this page may be of value to international and local organizations and individuals providing Ebola outbreak-related services in West Africa, as well as friends and family of people in the affected region.
The direct URL is - http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/ebola_2014.html
The National Library of Medicine Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) has also been activated to support healthcare professionals working on the Ebola public health emergency in West Africa. More resources on Ebola can be accessed free of charge at the following URL - http://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/ebola_emergency_access.html
