The Disaster Information Reference Library

History of the DIRL

Since the fall of 2017, an ongoing project has been chartered at the University of Washington to create and maintain a comprehensive reference library dedicated to academic disaster information and disaster information technology-related literature. Criteria for inclusion of an article or paper in the DIRL were established as a first step.

If you believe a reference is missing, please check that it meets all the required criteria for inclusion. If the missing reference meets those criteria, please send an email with the reference information to the curator.
