The MCEER Information Service

 

The MCEER Information Service provides assistance with various types of research related to earthquakes through a large number of resources.  It is a comprehensive source for information on earthquake engineering, earthquake hazards mitigation, disaster preparedness, and related topics.  Being an important part of MCEER's technology transfer effort, the MCEER Information Service is staffed by library and information specialists, who provide timely literature and information searching services for academic, public, and private sector researchers, professional practitioners, as well as local, state, and federal government officials, and the general public.

 

The MCEER Information Service is conveniently located in the University at Buffalo's Science and Engineering Library, enabling MCEER Information Service staff to quickly locate materials in numerous disciplines including geology, seismology, architecture, planning, engineering construction, the infrastructure, and emergency preparedness and response. Materials are also available on medical, legal, and socio-economic issues of earthquakes and natural disasters, such as search and rescue, recovery and rebuilding, legislative issues, public policy, risk assessment, and disaster insurance.

Quakeline is a search engine developed at MCEER and is a comprehensive database of published earthquake engineering research.  More information on Quakeline and the MCEER Information Service can be found at http://mceer.buffalo.edu/infoService/.
