Swine Flu current awareness tool via iGoogle

If you use iGoogle to help manage your online information, here’s a handy tool you can add to help you keep up to date on the emerging swine flu outbreak.  If you are logged into your Google account, just click here to add a “tab” to your iGoogle pages.   The tab includes headline searches and information from CDC and other organizations tracking the outbreak.  This was originally set up by P.F. Anderson, a librarian at the University of Michigan who helpfully posted a tutorial on how she created it.  We’ve tweaked it just a bit to add content from KPBSNews which is posting to their Twitter account as local stories emerge.  If you know of another good source of current information on the outbreak, please let us know via the comments.

Indeed what a great tool, a little late but whatever! Haha. Though I am thankful the Swine Flu craze did settle down in the US, I think the media and news broadcasters made it seem too much of a serious issue when it really wasn’t too bad. Though it is nice to make everyone aware!

Thanks again!
