Home Page, Digest Changes Made

January 03, 1997

In a continuing effort to improve the services the State Science and Technology Institute provides to its users, SSTI has made changes to its World Wide Web home page and the SSTI Weekly Digest.

 

The home page has moved to a new site (http://www.ssti.org) and expanded its offerings. In addition to continuing to provide access to state profiles, archived FYI messages, links to SSTI sponsors and other organizations, and technical assistance provided by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the home page will now offer:

  • The current and archived issues of the SSTI Weekly Digest
  • A calendar of events
  • Job postings
  • Brief biographies of SSTI Board members

In the coming weeks, watch for these additional changes on the home page:

  • A search function that will permit easier access to the state profiles and past issues of the Digest
  • Expanded links to government and other policy resources

Meanwhile, a survey of Digest readers indicates a high level of satisfaction with the content, length, and frequency of the newsletter. Eighty percent of the respondents indicated that they had followed up on information that they had learned about through the Digest. Almost ninety percent approved of the two-page length and wanted the Digest to stay a weekly publication.

Respondents encouraged more stories on: federal program changes, federal solicitations, and state program changes. To help make room for those stories, the job announcements that are run occasionally will be cut to a paragraph, but will be available through the home page or via fax to interested parties.

Additionally, the Digest will be available through three means of distribution: fax, e-mail, or the SSTI home page. If you would like to receive the Digest, by e-mail rather than fax, please e-mail us at contactus@ssti.org
