Electronic Mail Among University Training Centers. A Demonstration in National Network Building. Report R-49.
The activities described in this report were part of a demonstration project designed to test the feasibility of using electronic messages to support information and resources exchange among professionals who serve the developmentally disabled (DD). The one year demonstration included the participation of 26 university based centers across the United States and over 40 of their staff members. The centers which participated are designed to provide training, research and clinical experiences for their professionals working in the DD field. Information sharing revolved around the needs of agencies, and typical messages consisted of updates on events of professional importance as they occurred in Washington, exchange of specific research articles and information on current research, announcements of continuing education opportunities, and job availability announcements. As a result of the demonstration project, a permanent network was developed that now links over 30 university based training centers as well as 14 State Developmental Disability Councils. (MER)
