Guide to Open-Access Materials in EM

The Diva is torn about which side to take in the debate about textbooks or free-access digital resources.  As the editor of a textbook that took years of effort and dozens of experts to produce, she favors textbooks. [See: Emergency Management; the American Experience, 1900-2010] Yet, as the author of several blogs, she likes the ease and timeliness of sharing information in the digital format.

There are many high quality reports, documents, ebooks and the like available online. In that connection, The Diva has been writing this blog for more than 6 years, during which time about 2,000 postings have been published.  Recently, we compiled a substantial index (41 pp) of the postings, with annotations and direct URLs.

If you want to use digital resources in lieu of or to supplement textbooks, this index will get you off to a great start. This Roundup of Recent Resources in Emergency Management (2010-2015) is an excellent resource for consultants, academics, and students. Where else could you get this many digital resources in one place ?  This index can be yours immediately, if you donate $25. dollars or more to the blog. New: special rate of $10. for students.

  1. What a treasure trove of current information about emergency management! To have access to this Roundup’s table of contents only is huge, and that’s only the first two pages. Clearly, Authors Rubin and Sebring devoted major time and energy into compiling this 43-page document, an invaluable list of links to emergency management resources, and I am grateful.
