Simulating Hurrricane Katrina (Katrinasim)

This guide outlines some resources available for studying and understanding the Hurricane Katrina disaster.


This course guide outlines some resources available for researching information on hurricanes in general and the Hurricane Katrina disaster in particular.  It represents one approach -- but not necessarily the only approach -- to researching these questions.  In attempting to be fairly comprehensive the examples may include some resources and procedures that won't be useful for every aspect of the question -- and will not mention absolutely every resource available to you.  You will need to adapt the suggestions made here to your own specific question(s) and circumstances while being thoughtful, creative, resourceful and industrious in your research.

As always, if you have any questions about the resources listed here or about how to find information you need for this class, don't hesitate to ask a librarian for help!
