dc.description.abstract Public libraries, as public Internet access points and as physical and social community hubs, play an important role in the aftermath of disasters. Information and communication resources are critical. Communities also need spaces for regrouping and organizing. The 2010 earthquake in Chile dramatized the emergency value of these facilities. en_US
