DRC-Disaster Research Center


The Enrico Quarantelli Resource Collection

In addition to maintaining its own databases, DRC serves as a repository for materials collected by other agencies and researchers. The E. L. Quarantelli Resource Collection contains the world’s most complete collection on the social and behavioral science aspects of disasters. Now numbering more than 60,000 items, the Collection is open to both interested scholars and agencies involved in emergency management. This premier collection includes documents and publications not readily available elsewhere. The Center has its own book, monograph, and report series.

DRC's Online Institutional Repository

The University of Delaware Library offers access to the UDSpace, an online institutional repository that provides access to the Disaster Research Center's research in digital form, including technical reports, working papers, conference papers, images, and more. Of particular interest to disaster researchers is access to over 600 DRC preliminary papers, reports, and other documents produced by DRC faculty and staff. Each entry in the Institutional Repository consists of two parts (1) a catalog record for the document (including author information, year published, and an abstract) and (2) a downloadable PDF file of the document itself.
