National Institute for Literacy   http://www.nifl.gov/lincs/  Site Reviews(0)
The Literacy Information and Communication System, commonly referred to as LINCS, is the backbone of the Institute's dissemination system, providing information on a wide variety of literacy relevant topics, issues, and resources. The Institute is investing significant resources in updating LINCS, particularly the content it offers. As national attention has increasingly focused on the quality of instruction and educational resources, the Institute is shifting LINCS' emphasis from access to a wide variety of information to access to the highest-quality information, especially scientifically based research and resources based on the most rigorous research available. Where LINCS traditionally relied on a library model of providing resources, the redesigned LINCS will provide a more focused collection of high quality resources geared toward improving instruction and delivery of services. Technical assistance will center on assisting partner organizations and their members in using these new resources as well as training modules developed by the Institute. The new LINCS design uses four components: 1) Regional Resource Centers; 2) Resource Collections; 3) a Literacy Research Initiative (in planning stages), and 4) a Professional Development/Distance Learning Initiative (in planning stages). The Resource Collections are replacing the Content Development Partners, although the Institute hopes the new Collections will connect with the networks established by the Special Collections and expand the infrastructure and work they established.
