FEMA’s LLIS.gov Program Moving to Naval Postgraduate School’s Digital Library

This spring, the Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS) program that’s been managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Corrective Action and Lessons Learned Branch of the National Preparedness Directorate will make a significant change by relocating its massive archive of important resources, which include an untold number of lessons learned, best practices and after action reports.

The LLIS.gov website will cease independent operations and its its content will be consolidated into the Naval Postgraduate School’s Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL.org) and FEMA.gov.

One of the advantages of this move is that LLIS.gov content such as lessons learned, innovative practices, after-action reports, plans, templates, guides and other materials will be consolidated with the already substantial database on HSDL.org. This change will allow the homeland security and emergency management communities to find relevant information in one place. FEMA’s LLIS program will continue to produce trend analyses, case studies on the use of FEMA preparedness grants, and webinars relevant to the whole community. These products will be available to the public on FEMA.gov.

To learn more about LLIS.gov, read the Homeland Security Today report, Cautionary Tales: FEMA’s Library of Best Practices and Lessons Learned.

Documents are in the process of being posted right now and will continue to be posted over the next few months, according to a FEMA LLIS.gov official, who added, “The user requirements for membership to HSDL.org are very similar to LLIS, but users will have to register for access to restricted content, as users had to do with LLIS.gov. HSDL does have a large amount of public data as well, which users will be able to access without registering.

If you had submitted a document at any time to LLIS.gov and do not want that document to be transferred to HSDL.org, please email FEMA-lessonslearned@fema.dhs.gov before May 15, 2015.

LLIS.gov will continue to provide updates in the coming weeks and encourages users to review its Frequently Asked Questions list. If you have additional questions about this effort please email FEMA-lessonslearned@fema.dhs.gov.
