Yesterday, we sent out an email with links to several of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources for Hurricanes and Floods. You can review that email here: https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/USNLMDIMRC/bulletins/1b2ee96?reqfrom=share

 

We are adding searches of PubMed and Disaster Lit to the Hurricanes and Floods Information Guides. If you have syndicated these pages, those updates will automatically show up on your website. If you haven’t done so yet, take a look at the bulletin above and learn how you can do that!
