NLM is implementing changes to make it easier for online health information seekers to find and navigate trusted disaster health information. As of November 2020, we have begun the process of transitioning DIMRC programs to other parts of NLM, integrating them into other NLM resources, making them accessible on partner sites, or eventually discontinuing them.

Currently, NLM is limiting updates to the Disaster Lit database to COVID-19 related data collection tools found in the DR2. We are no longer adding links to other new disaster-related information. The content of select resources from Disaster Lit will be digitized and made available through Digital Collections and Bookshelf.

Journal articles related to disaster health and public health emergencies can continue to be found indexed in PubMed. Visit MedlinePlus, NLM’s trust health information source, for topics related to disaster health information.

The original sources for disaster-related information from Disaster Lit can be found at:

These efforts serve to improve discoverability of and access to critical disaster resources by NLM's broad set of users, while also enabling NLM to leverage its talents and resources in ways that maximize our efficiency and effectiveness. We will continue to provide updates as changes occur.

If you have questions or suggestions, please contact NLM Customer Service.
