This guide was produced by the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) Library to compile resources regarding historic pandemics/epidemics and their emergency responses. Resources include books, articles, radio broadcasts, government publications, and more!
Use the tabs to the left to explore the pages of the guide! Resources in this guide are organized by pandemic/epidemic, and each page contains multiple boxes that are listed on the navigation bar after you've clicked on the page. Use the tabs for easy navigation!
The Illinois Fire Service Institute Library contains books, codes and standards, DVDs, CDs, periodicals, manuals, e-resources, audiobooks, and other fire emergency resources, totaling over 65,000 items. We serve all first responders in the state of Illinois. Materials can be requested in person, by phone or email, or online through our catalog. You can search our catalog by title, author, keyword, subject, or publisher, and choose the formats you want to see. Enter as few or as many search terms as you would like; the more search terms you use the fewer results you'll get, but the results will be more specific. If you live in Illinois and have a public library card, we can send materials to your public library via interlibrary loan. Anyone is also welcome to visit us in person!
