Description:
Writing this welcome address there is a lot of information and speculation going around about the "swine-related" influenza. Several librarians' discussion lists have reported about updated sites with the latest data about the spreading of the disease. There is certainly an important role for informationists here. By tradition librarians are not so much involved in data gathering and statistics, but might well be in the near future. Our colleagues Pa"ivi Pekkarinen and Sue Thomas, co-chairs of the EAHIL Public Health Information SIG, have attended the meeting of the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) last year and it was decided to investigate possibilities for further cooperation and involvement of (medical) librarians & informationists with the work of the ECDC. With the outbreak of this new strand of influenza the need for up-to-date and reliable information is felt by many; cooperation and coordination is mandatory.
