Homeland Security Digital Library

With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 days away, many in the United States are reflecting on the many changes that have occurred since then. We have become more conscious of the intersection between homeland security and larger global issues. One place to look for information on these topics is the Homeland Security Digital Library. Since the University Libraries is a federal depository library, the university community has access to over 92,000 documents that the site has compiled from a wide variety of national and international sources. These include documents outlining the national strategy for defense of the homeland as well as other materials. Recently added document include Muslim Americans: No Signs of Growth in Alienation or Support for Extremism from the Pew Research Center and Oslo Terrorist Attacks: Analysis, Lessons Learned and Consequences from the Fondation Pour La Recherche Strategique in France.

With material from a wide variety of sources the site is a good place to start research into security-related topics. Links are available on the Government Information's Homeland Security page and from the Find Articles and More page of Chinook.
