NTIS sets up homeland security site

The National Technical Information Service has launched the Homeland Security Information Center for the public, at www.ntis.gov/hs. NTIS, a reference unit of the Commerce Department, wants the site to serve as the public's go-to guide for counterterrorism, emergency preparedness and health information.

The NTIS site has best picks in five areas: health and medicine, food and agriculture, biological and chemical warfare, preparedness and response, and safety training. It includes relevant studies, statistics and reports from other federal agencies, contractors and universities. The collection ranges from a pre-Sept. 11 defense strategy report to conference transcripts on food pathogens to a 17-minute video describing weapons of mass destruction.

Dozens of homeland security reports are available, priced from $9 by download up to $27 on paper for more than 20 pages. They come from NTIS' inventory of 3 million government-funded references on more than 350 topics.
