LLIS Innovative Practice: SR 530 Mudslide and Flooding: Using Social Media to Communicate Information During a Disaster
Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS)
From the Summary: "The SR 530 mudslide and flooding in Washington state destroyed a community, blocked a highway and cut off towns upriver. Snohomish County used social media from the beginning of the disaster to share relevant, credible public information with the community and media. Social media proved invaluable in providing timely information to a broad audience and managing rumor control."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
