Searching the E.L. Quarantelli Collection
DISCAT and Catalog Holdings
(Online Fall 2019)
DISCAT, the catalog database for the E. L. Quarantelli Resource Collection, is not currently web-accessible. DRC is currently working with UD's Computer Engineering faculty to develop a new search engine that will support DISCAT and will make it web-accessible in Fall of 2019. To request a search, please contact Collection staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bulk of materials in the E. L. Quarantelli Resource Collection can be found in archival holdings, which comprises materials collected during field research and other original research data. These materials include, but are not limited to interview transcripts, surveys, photographs and audio-visual materials of disaster events, and supplemental materials collected at disaster sites (e.g. local newspapers, meeting minutes, fliers, and memorabilia).
Due to the sensitive nature of these materials, DRC's archival holdings are currently classed as restricted and users must apply for access. To access materials, please review the below finding aid (Ctrl+F to search) and email Assistant Director for Archives and Collections, Valerie Marlowe at email@example.com.
