LLIS.gov going away and moving to HSDL.org and FEMA.gov

Are you pointing to documents at LLIS.gov? Those links appear to be broken. LLIS.gov (which points to llis.dhs.gov) has had a generic “Site under maintenance” page since at least December 2014.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS) program’s LLIS.gov website will cease independent operations and consolidate its content with the Naval Postgraduate School’s Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL.org) and FEMA.gov. Documents are being posted at their new sites 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.

  • LLIS.gov Consolidation Information
    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 an already substantial database on HSDL.org. This 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, webinars, and other documents relevant to emergency managers. These products will be available either on this site or HSDL.org.
