Oregon's Pilot State Dissemination Program. Final Report.
Oregon's Dissemination Program was established in July 1970. The primary purpose of the program was to provide a means through which pertinent, validated information could be made accessible in usable form to assist educators in making better educational decisions. The program was administered by a staff of six, two of whom were assigned to two intermediate education district offices. The program provided a computer-based information center using "Research in Education" (RIE) and "Current Index to Journals in Education" (CIJE) files of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) files as the primary source of documents. State library resources and the services of the Northern Colorado Educational Board of Cooperative Services were used extensively during the initial year of operation. It took a full year to accumulate adequate resources and establish procedures which approached full-scale operations. The number of requests processed by the center gradually increased from 13 in October 1970 to 146 in September 1971. By May 1972, the number of intermediate education districts with extension agents had increased from two to twenty. An extensive evaluation of the pilot program is available as ED 065 739 and 065 740. (Author/SJ)
