Avian Influenza Resources

The Health Sciences Libraries (Dentistry, Taubman Medical, and Public Health) have partnered to provide the following collection of online resources about avian flu and pandemic response / preparedness.

Health Sciences Libraries: Guides: Avian Influenza Resources: http://www.lib.umich.edu/hsl/guides/avianflu.html

The links on the page above take you to sections within a collection of resources in del.icio.us -- a free bookmarking and productivity tool. The main sections we are highlighting for you are these:

- Major Avian Flu Portals
- Overviews of Avian Flu
- Disaster Planning
- Personal and Family Planning
- Local Michigan Information
- News and Travel Information
- Research

You can either go directly to one of those sections and browse the links available there, or you can browse the entire collection of over 40 recommended links. Each link includes a brief note describing why the resource is useful as well as terms (called "tags" in Del.icio.us) that you might think of as subject headings. The tags or subject headings describe the resource in a little more detail, and help you decide if you want to visit that site.

There is additional information on how to use Del.icio.us at their help page.
