Disaster in Haiti
As we are all watching the disaster and relief efforts unfold in front of us, I am surounded by colleagues in Boston attending the Americal Library Association. I learned of two tools created by libraries in Massachusetts to assist people in learning more about this effort. From the University of Massachusetts at Amherst comes the library guide “Disaster in Haiti” http://guides.library.umass.edu/haiti From Boston Public Library comes an informational page “Crisis in Haiti” http://www.bpl.org/news/haiti.htm With these two web pages, you can learn more about Haiti, stay up to date on the news about the disaster, and learn about legitimate ways to help.
