George Housner Earthquake Engineering Collection

The George Housner Earthquake Engineering Collection, supports research in the field of structural engineering related to earthquakes, especially the construction of buildings and infrastructure to withstand earthquakes. Special emphases are strong-motion accelerogram data and disaster-related topics -- including public policy -- not limited to earthquakes. The collection includes the major technical report collections in the field, as well as slide collections and video materials.

This collection has been housed in the Sherman Fairchild Library for Engineering and Applied Science since 2005. It was originally a component of the Earthquake Engineering Research Laboratory.
