Two research guides appropriate for general audiences (and with links for K-12 students) are available on the MCEER Information Service’s web page (http://mceer.buffalo.edu/infoservice/ — follow the “Research Guides” link, listed under “Reference Services”). These guides - Use the Internet to Learn More About Earthquakes and Use the Internet to Learn More About Engineering – are the latest in a series of Research Guides created by the Information Service for use by visitors to our site.
Newly updated Guides (with recently added content) include the Guide to Selected Web Sites for Earthquake Education, the Guide to Selected Bridge Engineering Web Sites, and World Trade Center and Pentagon Attacks of 9/11/2001: Selected Resources, a bibliography rich with information on the 9/11 attacks from engineering and disaster management perspectives. In addition, our popular Guide to U.S. & International Seismic Codes is available for anyone interested in obtaining seismic code specifications for the U.S. and many foreign countries.
Longtime users of the Information Service may also wish to familiarize themselves with our newly updated Fee Schedule and Lending Policy (found at the Information Service web page address listed above, under “General”). Several modifications have been made in these policies as a result of the changing needs of our users.
