Frequently I have researchers both national and international contact me wanting to know whether I have access to literature on various topics related to the earthquakes. So I have included a list of new titles of which I am aware, arising from the earthquakes. There are four categories: health, education, engineering, governance and miscellaneous. For those of you who are interested in research or simply curious the list is below. Many of the articles are Journal articles so have to be paid for. I will continue to update this list as time progresses.
