Technical Resources

The ASPR TRACIE Technical Resources domain includes two main components, the Resource Library and the Topic Collections. This domain is a compilation of resources from numerous contributors, including existing databases from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and other government agencies. It contains up-to-date disaster medical, healthcare system preparedness, and public health preparedness materials. ASPR and NLM are partners in the development of the ASPR TRACIE Technical Resources Library, a resource of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

A complete listing of ASPR TRACIE-developed resources can be found here.

The Resource Library contains the complete Disaster Lit®: Resource Guide for Disaster Medicine and Public Health database of over 10,000 records that include no-cost, online disaster medicine and public health documents and other resources selected from over 1,100 organizations. Disaster Lit is developed, maintained, and licensed by the Disaster Information Management Research Center, Specialized Information Services Division, National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health. The Resource Library also contains resources submitted by ASPR TRACIE stakeholders and subject matter experts (SMEs) and identified by the ASPR TRACIE team.

The Topic Collections are annotated bibliographies that highlight key resources under specific health and medical preparedness topics. These collections contain resources that were vetted and recommended by ASPR TRACIE SMEs. The SMEs chose materials considered the best and most useful in helping healthcare system preparedness practitioners improve preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation, clinical care, workforce training, and exercises. Collections include peer-reviewed as well as other public and privately developed materials such as fact sheets, reports, technical briefs, white papers, articles, bulletins, toolkits, webinars, plans, guidelines, best practices, lessons learned, and templates. Each Topic Collection has sub-categories that are most applicable to that collection.
