Title:Independent Study Paper: how can the DCC project make the content in the IMLS National Leadership Grant collections more accessible to teachers of K-12 students?
Author(s):Ross, Geoff
Subject(s):IMLS DCC
Digital libraries
Abstract:The intended users of the DCC aggregated collections are Educators of K-12 students. However, studies of this user group expose a mismatch between what the DCC collections offer, and what K-12 teachers need. The DCC currently has about thirty collections that already offer lesson plans, and these are probably ready to be mobilized, either through the DCC's own interface, or through an existing service like GEM. For the most part, however, the National Leadership Grant collections do not appear to have been packaged for use in K-12 classrooms, and yet they contain material that would likely be valuable in such settings.
