New Course for Disaster Information Specialists: Social Media Analysis During Disasters!

Posted by on February 20th, 2018 Posted in: Education & Training, Emergency Preparedness and Response, NLM Resources, Public Health, Social networking


For emergency managers, information specialists, and others responding to large-scale disasters, it is challenging to filter through the volume of noise on social media to identify valid, actionable information. This new course, Social Media Analysis During Disasters, will help participants develop and implement a plan to effectively monitor and analyze disaster information on social media. This self-paced course fulfills one of the requirements of the Medical Library Association (MLA) Disaster Information Specialization, and provides three MLA continuing education (CE) credits. To review a list of additional free online courses to earn the MLA Disaster Information Specialist certificate, visit the NLM DIMRC Training Courses webpage.
