Project SEEK, 1979-1982. Final Report.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma State Capacity Building Project, Project SEEK (Sooner Exchange for Educational Knowledge) emphasized three approaches in working toward building a comprehensive dissemination system for Oklahoma's educators: (1) systematic information collection, storage, retrieval, and delivery to educators through state education agency information specialists, through assistance to regional education services centers staff, and through 400 local librarians; (2) assisting service centers in follow-up services, identifying information needs and producing new information; and (3) discovering information sources to assist educators in solving problems, filling needs, or building new programs. During the project, educational documents, publications, and periodicals were supplied to educators through centralized access to the ERIC database. A linkage network was established with state government agencies, universities and vocational and technical schools, the state library, and the Regional Educational Libraries and Center. This report lists the project staff, advisory boards, information packets contents, and the major achievements for each year of the project. It touches on major components and activities, dissemination, institutionalization, equity issues, overall impact on practice, client responsiveness, significant learnings, and collaborative relationships. Also included are 1982 annual report totals, a 5-year comparison, and a list of miscellaneous staff activities for 1982. (LMM)
