Iowa Network for Obtaining Resource Materials for Schools (INFORMS), Activities Manual; Operational and Promotional.
Bruett, Mary Jo; And Others
In an effort to respond to a growing need of educators to have access to educational information, the Iowa State Department of Public Instruction has initiated an information service for local school districts. The information and retrieval service is provided through Project INFORMS (Iowa Network For Obtaining Resource Materials for Schools). It is anticipated that this service will increase the number of alternatives for alleviating needs in local districts. Hopefully, improved long-range planning procedures will be created and implemented. Due to the newness of information networks, this manual was constructed to assist INFORMS personnel in identifying their roles and becoming familiar with operational techniques. An effort was made to identify and explain all the different kinds of activities to be performed in Project INFORMS. The promotional and operational activities of the project are extensively discussed. (Author/SJ)
