University of Delaware Library/Statewide K-12 Partnership Providing Online Resources and Training: UDLib/SEARCH.
Millard, Sandra K.
UDLib/SEARCH is a unique partnership between the University of Delaware Library and state K-12 education in Delaware. UDLib/SEARCH provides access to 16 full text databases via the Internet on the state network to all Delaware public high schools and middle schools, and training for teachers and librarians. Using $30 million in state funds, Delaware is the first state to wire every classroom in all public schools to the Internet, and UDLib/SEARCH is one of the first statewide applications on that network. This collaboration has served to further strengthen the partnership between the University, the state, and the education community. (Author)
