This page is aimed at providing on line resources for students who need access to research papers, booklists and guidance to further their studies in crowd safety matters. The impetus for this came from Mick Upton who has frequent requests for information from students and we thought that a general resources page within the safeconcerts site could provide an additional dimension by having a practical area where industry papers could be accessed and further avenues of study highlighted. We hope you will find it useful and helpful but please bear with us as obviously it will take time to develop. To start things off we have an initial booklist and a paper written by Mick Upton that provides an insiders perspective on the 1988 Donnington disaster.
