Homeland Security Digital Library: Free Resources for Federal Depository Libraries

The Naval Postgraduate School’s Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL) recently completed the transfer of 23,000 resources from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS) program into the HSDL public and full collections.

These emergency management resources are now searchable in one location along with other related Homeland Security documents already available through HSDL. Among the topics covered by resources in the LLIS collection are:

  • Lessons learned
  • Innovative practices
  • After-action reports
  • Guides
  • Hazard and core capability trend analyses
  • Grant case studies

The LLIS program will continue to produce new content which will also be made available through HSDL. Through the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s (GPO’s) partnership with the Naval Postgraduate School, Federal depository libraries are eligible for access to HSDL’s Full Collection, which contains over 160,000 homeland security related resources and the LLIS collection. All the resources added to the collection are selected and reviewed by a team of librarians and subject matter experts at HSDL. Highlights of the types of resources available include:

  • Policy and strategy documents
  • GAO reports
  • Thesis and research reports from U.S. Federal academic institutions
  • Reports and research from a wide variety of Federal agencies
  • Hand-selected lists of documents on current homeland security issues
