This presentation outlines the goals of the Crisis, Tragedy and Recovery Network (CTRnet) project. These goals include researching the problems of integrating content, community, services related to crisis, tragedies, and recovery; integrating heterogeneous information in a specific domain, making it accessible, and preserving it for long-term reuse; extending the scope of digital libraries so they are closely but flexibly coupled with a wide variety of services to support diverse emerging communities; and supporting information exploration with advanced methods (Stepping Stones and Pathways (SSP), PathRank, and Storytelling) that facilitate searching, browsing, and discovery.
