Moughon, Anne; Elliott, Jess P.
This report summarizes the Georgia Dissemination Capacity-Building Project, which from 1976 to 1981 funded increased dissemination of information on educational resources by Georgia's Education Information Center (EIC). Following a brief introduction containing project background information, five report sections provide: (1) a summary of major project components and activities, including EIC compilation of individualized research packets based on computer or manual searches of the educational literature, and other EIC services to the State Department of Education, intermediate agencies, and local school systems; (2) a chart comparing EIC services before and after the project; (3) a discussion of the transfer of EIC funding from federal to state and other sources; (4) an examination of the project's involvement in promoting equity in areas related to race, sex, the handicapped, and rural education; and (5) a project impact statement comprising results of an EIC user survey, three case histories and additional brief project outcomes, and the final project impact report. Appendices include an evaluation of EIC operations from 1979 to 1981 with data on specific EIC services, a sample user request form for obtaining educational information from EIC, and an EIC literature search evaluation form with notation of evaluation results for 1979 to 1981.
