Citizen Access to Government and Other Information.
Ryan, Joe; McClure, Charles R.
This report presents the results of a June 1997 onsite evaluation of a U.S. Department of Education HEA II-B grant awarded to the Portland Area Library System (PORTALS) during the period October 1, 1995 to September 30, 1997. The grant offered an opportunity to increase collaboration among PORTALS members via the activities of network deployment, information resources and services provision, and collective formative and summative evaluation. In addition to PORTALS, grant participants include: Multnomah County Library, Oregon Historical Society, and the Oregon State Library. The report looks at each grant participant's activities covering: project objectives; chronology of events and accomplishments to date; staff development activities; principal project work products; dissemination of project results; evaluation activities; lessons learned; next steps; and recommendations. Substantially improved citizen access to federal, state, county, and city government information in Oregon as a result of the grant are documented. The report closes with overall conclusions and recommendations to PORTALS. Contains extensive appendices. (Author/AEF)
