Thrall Special Coverage Guide: Haiti Earthquake

Mary Climes, Head of Reference at the Middletown (NY) Thrall Library, and Thrall reference librarian Robert Tiess have created (and continue to update) a resource guide concerning the earthquake crisis in Haiti.

They have done so, as they have done "in the past with other guides in our Special Coverage Center, for the dual benefit of our local library system members and the larger world of online users."

Topics include:

◦About Haiti
◦About Earthquakes
◦Charity & Relief Organizations
◦Contact Information
◦Embassies & Consulate
◦Health Information & Issues
◦Photographs & Photojournalism
◦Maps of Haiti & Earthquake Zone
◦Missing Persons Searches
◦News & Special Coverage
◦U.S. Government Information
◦U.S. Military Support Missions
◦United Nations (UN) & International Information
◦Library Resources & Research Keywords
IRS Notice 2010-16 designates the Haiti earthquake occurring in January 2010 as a qualified disaster for purposes of § 139 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Notice 2010-16 will be published in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2010-06 on February 8, 2010.
