Abstract:

Word-oriented databases bibliographic, textual, directory, etc. relevant to various units within the Federal Emergency Management Agency are identified and those of most potential relevance are analyzed. Subject profiles reflecting the interests of each major FEMA unit were developed and tested online on fifteen publicly available databases. The databases were then ranked by the number of citations pertinent to all aspects of emergency management and the number of pertinent citations per year of database coverage. Sample citations from the fifteen databases are included. A model Directory of Databases pertinent to emergency management was developed. Author
