Solar Technology Information Transfer in West Virginia. A Report of the Planning Conference (Charleston, West Virginia, April 18-19, 1979).
Nelson, James B., Ed.
Concerned with formulating a methodology that would best enable West Virginia's Solar Technology Transfer Program to work, the participants in a planning conference held on April 18 and 19, 1979, met to isolate techniques and objectives that would most effectively allow consumer access to solar energy information, and emphasized the role of public libraries as delivery agents. Deliberations resulted in the adoption of the following planning objectives: (1) to promote public awareness of solar information packets, (2) to disseminate all types of solar energy information through libraries and schools, (3) to encourage cooperation among the various agencies concerned, (4) to update and evaluate solar literature, (5) to train and develop the staffs who will transmit solar information to the public, (6) to expand the content of information packets into other energy areas, (7) to use the program model as a means of strengthening services and expanding public awareness in other areas, and (8) to evaluate the effectiveness of the packets and the strategies used in accomplishing the above objectives. The planning group hoped that the methodology used to implement the Program would be useful in the dissemination of other types of information. (FM)
