AAUP's Katrina Relief Page

As I mentioned at the SSP meeting in my introduction to Keith Seitter's wonderful talk on the American Meteorological Society's jaw-droppingly awesome programs to promote science literacy, publishers can and are helping the Gulf Region and other areas of the world heal after the devasting hurricanes and the tsunami.

The American Association of University Presses has put together a web page that provides great ideas for how to help--it has both library-specific needs and links to more general organizations, like Habitat for Humanity, which is helping to provide homes for the displaced.

While not front-page news any longer, the needs in these areas are still overwhelming.
