New Natural Disaster Resource Announced

Ebrary just announced a new online resource called the Natural Disaster & Extreme Weather Searchable Information Center. They've gathered in one place public domain PDFs,  and created more PDFs from web pages, Word documents, and other file types

I've always wanted to take a deeper look at the Katrina disaster, so I looked at the Katrina records (26 documents) to see how well ebrary recorded that disaster. I'm not impressed. Obviously the collection can only be as good as the source material, and that was lacking in detail.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
