Kuhn, G. Michael
This report describes the goals, objectives, activities, and accomplishments of the Florida Capacity Building Project, which was undertaken to improve the information dissemination capabilities of the Florida educational community and which resulted in the establishment of the Florida Resources in Education Exchange (FREE). A detailed statement of the project's goals is followed by an outline of the project's four functional areas--Leadership, Information Resources, Linkage, and Management. Also discussed are the major achievements of the project, including the establishment of a Regional Exchange program to provide access to the resources of the Appalachian Educational Laboratory (AEL), the development of a national Research and Development Exchange (RDx), and the expansion of information resources to include access to computerized databases through Lockheed's DIALOG. A table comparing information dissemination activities before and after the project is attached. Appended to the report are 13 of the products of project activities, among which are a Public School Resource Center Request Form, an annotated bibliography of Florida Department of Education publications, a Nutrition Education Resource Catalog, a list of materials on law education available for loan through the Public Schools Resource Center, and a Florida Database abstract form.
