Homeland Security Digital Library

We now have access to the Homeland Security Digital Library. This website is a joint project of the Department of Homeland Security and the Naval Postgraduate School. The HSLD contains most unclassified homeland security policy documents, Presidential directives, selected CRS and GAO reports, and papers written at the Naval Postgraduate School. There is basic and advanced searching, browse topics, and a page listing policy and strategy documents. Keep in mind that Homeland security deals with more than just terrorism and defense issues. You will find a lot here on bird flu and hurricanes. Look at the Browse Topics page to get an idea of the breath of topics covered.

For some reason, HSD and NPS feel that they have to have some control over who uses this site. Anyone can use it, but they have to register first. They now allow academic libraries to register their IP ranges so that no registration is required for University of Colorado users.
