The Library is comprised of materials that pertain to the study of tsunamis.
The aim of the Library is to assist in the understanding of tsunamis by
maintaining both current and historical materials, and making these available
in the public interest to the public and researchers at large. The materials
include contributions from organizations, ... as well as individuals who have
donated copies of their work. The IOC/UNESCO International Tsunami Information
Center (ITIC) Library catalogue currently contains over 5,600 records, and is
searchable through the link below.
The Library collects tsunami and earthquake catalogs, tsunami event
information, conference proceedings, maps, reports, government documents,
journal articles, and graduate theses. Government documents have been collected
from US federal, state and local agencies, as well as from UNESCO's IOC and
other ITSU Member States. The documents focus on research, risk assessment,
tsunami travel time and source studies, and measurement of tsunamis. Research
themes include ocean engineering, disasters and economic development, earth
science and disaster case studies. Manuals deal with land use management,
conducting post-tsunami surveys, and tsunami warning system communication
plans. Mitigation materials relating to the social aspects of warning, disaster

magazine articles, brochures, photographs, videos and educational materials,
and has archives of oral history.
