The new Humanitarian Library contains all the content on the Shelter Library, with over 1,000 additional shelter and settlement documents. Over 1,000 more documents shared by agencies will be uploaded when capacity allows. Users may share further content in any language in real-time by uploading it. Collections may be made within the Library by creating ‘channels’, for example see this channel on debris management developed with stakeholders in South Asia.
Shelter Centre closed its offices in Geneva, but will continue to have a virtual presence and operate as an NGO and a partner in five IASC clusters. Our online resources supporting the sector, including the Humanitarian Library, Shelter Library and Meeting websites, will be maintained. The Shelter Meeting will continue when a sustainable model is identified. There will be a single event in 2014, supported by the Global Shelter Cluster, dates to be confirmed. Proposals for presentations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
