Conference Report; Dissemination of NIE-Sponsored Products.
Brickell, Henry M.; Wong, Susan
A summary of a two-day conference held in September, 1973 is presented. The meeting was convened by the Planning and Policy Analysis Unit of the National Institute of Education (NIE); its purpose was to bring NIE staff together with developers, publishers, attorneys, and educators to develop input for a position paper on dissemination and copyright policies which the NIE staff was preparing for its National Council. The agenda included the following topics: 1) copyright models; 2) copyright policies; 3) effective use of materials; 4) educating users; 5) developers as distributors; 6) distributors as developers; 7) special products; 8) clearinghouse functions; 9) evaluation, review, and revision; and 10) royalties. The conference report first presents a conceptual framework for the related tasks of research, development, evaluation, demonstration, distribution, and implementation and then articulates seven principles upon which dissemination and copyright policy can be based. A total of 63 applications based on these principles and designed to produce more effective widespread use of NIE-sponsored products concludes the report. (PB)
