Sosland Online Resource Center

  1. 1. Sosland Online Resource Center Logic Model and Project Plan Rebecca Gafvert 10/25/2007
  2. 2. Goals of the meeting <ul><li>Review the background of the SORC. </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate the status quo. </li></ul><ul><li>Use logic modeling to establish: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Desired outcomes with a focus on the end-user. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A philosophy for the SORC. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy for moving forward. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Funded by, surprise, the Soslands! </li></ul><ul><li>The original concept was grand – an all-encompassing online resource center for educators and lay-leaders. </li></ul><ul><li>Created by Caren Levine, the former Director of Technology. </li></ul><ul><li>June 2002 - launched </li></ul><ul><li>November 2003 - Access database was created. </li></ul>Background
  4. 4. <ul><li>Sosland consists of an Access database with 660+ resources. </li></ul><ul><li>The records consist of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>URLs to websites, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Documents tagged with keywords. </li></ul></ul>Status Quo
  5. 5. <ul><li>Status Quo </li></ul><ul><li>Database driven – Microsoft Access </li></ul>
  6. 6. Logic Modeling <ul><li>Because this project already exists, we should approach a logic model from the side of project planning . We should focus on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>JESNA’s larger logic model. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Original intended versus currently desired outcomes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The end-users and the problem to be solved/need to be fulfilled. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Building the connection between some preliminary outputs and desired outcomes. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. How does the SORC fit in JESNA’s Logic Model for Educator Development and Support?
  8. 8. <ul><li>What problem was the SORC originally designed to solve? As it states on the site, </li></ul><ul><li>For whom? Who were the originally intended end-users? </li></ul>Problem or Issue Originally
  9. 9. Does the “for:” drop-down menu have anything to do with this?
  10. 10. <ul><li>Who do we NOW envision as the target end-users for the resource center? </li></ul><ul><li>What need do we want to fulfill or problem do we want to solve for them? </li></ul><ul><li>The answers to these questions should form a “ philosophy ” for the resource center. </li></ul>Problem or Issue Now
  11. 11. The Wallace Foundation’s Knowledge Center Philosophy
  12. 12. <ul><li>There are many other websites that serve similar functions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CAJE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DataJEM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>JAFI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lookstein.org </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PEJE </li></ul></ul>Needs and Assets
  13. 13. Needs and Assets <ul><li>How is ours going to be different? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How do we envision our place in the online community, in terms of: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Audience? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Resources provided? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other functions of the website? </li></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Needs and Assets <ul><li>What should the SORC NOT be? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What topics should not be included? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What functions will our website not perform? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What audience are we not addressing? </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Inputs and Resources <ul><li>What are the budgetary constraints? </li></ul><ul><li>How closely is this linked to JESWeb? </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Impact </li></ul><ul><li>Directly related to the philosophy </li></ul><ul><li>Outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>Outputs </li></ul>Desired Results
  17. 17. <ul><li>What do we know about the outcomes up to this point? </li></ul><ul><li>What outcomes do we want to see? </li></ul>Desired Outcomes
  18. 18. <ul><li>MAKE THESE SMARTer. </li></ul><ul><li>The LCC (and any other stakeholders) will develop a philosophy for the SORC, which will guide the project and be posted online for users. </li></ul><ul><li>The resources currently housed in the SORC will be more thoroughly indexed with more metadata (to be determined) to enhance the search function. </li></ul><ul><li>Irrelevant categories will be eliminated, and the list of topical categories will be expanded and edited. </li></ul><ul><li>Each topical category will be filled with resources, including any resources that are currently housed in the PDC, NAACHHS, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Criteria will be developed for inclusion of resources. </li></ul><ul><li>A process will be developed by which staff (and others?) can contribute resources on a regular basis. </li></ul>Outputs Recommendations – Short Term
  19. 19. Going forward… Issues for future meetings <ul><li>Short-term outputs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Better indexing and cataloguing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Standards for: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Criteria for inclusion of resources </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Archiving policy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Process for adding new resources </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mid to long-term outputs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Evaluate and improve existing organization and indexing, in terms of topical categories, types of publications, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Brainstorm new ways to organize resources. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Website: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Think about new functions and design. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Part of JESNA website, or temporarily separate? </li></ul></ul></ul>
