Online library hits 1.8 million searches!

The Periperi U online resources centre or online library has just hit 1 800 000 searches since its launch in late 2016. From these over 200 000 PDF documents have been downloaded. 

The online resource centre initiative was started when Periperi U (the consortium of which RADAR is the secretariat), was able to save thousands of disaster risk related materials from the Geneva UN Library which were queued for recycling. Over the past two years we have been collecting these documents, digitizing them and uploading them onto our pilot platform. The Primary goal of this initiative was to offer a platform for our students  across the partnership to access to disaster risk related documents to assist them with their learning and research. Over the next few years we will be uploading hundreds of disaster risk related documents.

This has staggering amount is far above anything the consortium would have ever imaged, especially within its first few months of operation.

Thank you to everyone for visiting the library and making this milestone happen. We hope that you will continue to enjoy using this platform and benefit from its use.

Kind Regards

The Periperi U Online Team
