The ebrary staff has created an in-depth searchable cluster of information about the H1N1 virus, sometimes known as the "swine flu".    It consists of reports, papers, newsletters, and posters from government agencies and "other trusted souces".  This database is highly interactive with options for searching, navigating and browsing, notes and highlights.   Ebrary  software, "InfoTools", renders each word a portal to further web searching.  Text can be copied, pasted, transfered to folders, sent to others, and bibliographic citations and URLs are provided.
