Website Reviews: Digitalpromise.org

Digital Promise - Accelerating Innovation in Education is an independent, bipartisan nonprofit organization dedicated to focusing private sector digital technology innovation to transform public schools. Given scarce public education resources and seemingly limited opportunities to collaborate, Digital Promise stands poised as a facilitator of action. By using the site as a platform for their accomplishments -- displaying examples of innovation, and showcasing models that other schools and business people can follow -- Digital Promise shows their value to potential donors and collaborators. The question, though, is how well a site that showcases accomplishments actually encourages further participation.

Website Reviews: Ohio Public Employees Retirement System

The Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) serves those who, according to their website, are “paid in whole or in part by the State of Ohio.” OPERS has three distinct target groups within its body of users. These include members, employers, and retirees. On the main page, these three groups can easily find prominently placed links that suit their needs.

You also have access to government information librarians through the Government Information Online (GIO) virtual Ask A Librarian service.  These librarians are experts at finding information from government agencies of all levels (local, state, regional, national international) on almost any subject.
