Introduction

The Resource Typing Library Tool (RTLT) is an online catalogue of national NIMS resource typing definitions, job titles/position qualifications and Position Task Books (PTBs) provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Integration Center (NIC).

RTLT consists of five primary pages: Home, Browse, Links & Tools, About, and Help. Users can navigate through these pages by selecting the tabs at the top of the screen.
