Model Organizational Structures and Best Practices for Successful National Collaborative Information Partnerships.
Libutti, Patricia O'Brien
Linking information to education users goes beyond information organization issues, such as abstracting, indexing, and information filters. It is a social issue as well. This paper focuses upon the social dimensions of education information, as expressed in partnerships needed for the United States Educational Information Network's (USEIN) start-up planning, organization, and diffusion. The paper initially focuses on a consideration of education information and its users. The literature on collaboration and partnership is reviewed for the purpose of looking at successful collaboration factors applicable to an information network of education resources. A generic listing of "Best Practices" is provided, using factors derived from case studies of collaborative ventures. A visualization of USEIN as an umbrella networked information system depicting relationships with its stakeholders concludes the paper. (Contains 37 references.) (Author/SWC)
