As its name implies, the Online Card Catalog (OCC) is the index that provides bibliographic access only to the collection of the National Emergency Training Center's (NETC) Learning Resource Center (LRC). While the LRC is the on-campus library for the staff and students of the National Fire Academy (NFA) and the Emergency Management Institute (EMI), the OCC will function for Internet users as a database on fire service and emergency management topics. Its fundamental service to Internet users is one of identification. The OCC identifies published resources on topics of professional interest to fire service and emergency management personnel.
