In October, EQNET, the Earthquake Information Network, at http://www.eqnet.org, had logged more than 100,000 hits, recorded since November, 1999, when the counter was first installed. Funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), EQNET is a one-stop web source of authoritative, current earthquake information, which is sponsored by the Earthquake Information Provider’s Group (EqIP), a consortium of earthquake information providers.
A useful research feature of EQNET is the Archives category, which provides access to web reports from recent significant earthquakes. For example, if a researcher wishes to access a web report or an image that had appeared at the time of the Nisqually Earthquake of February, 2001, chances are, these resources can be found in the EQNET Archives even years after the event.
During the past year, EQNET was favorably reviewed in ResearchBuzz, an online newsletter devoted to Internet research news, web databases, and search engines. EQNET was also cited in NSF’s Sci-Tech Library Newsletter.
