Hurricane Flyer Now Available!

Now that hurricane season is here, allow us to introduce a few of the new products and services that have been developed for public libraries by the Information Use Management & Policy Institute (Information Institute) at Florida State University. These new services were developed from a project designed to help public libraries to better assist their communities during hurricane disasters.

WEB PORTAL: The Information Institute’s new web portal captures many best practices to help you better prepare for hurricane season. This web portal also includes access to a comprehensive collection of hurricane information resources. Please visit the homepage of the web portal located at:
