Abstract

During this application period the 104 funds will be used to provide skilled personnel support to Water Center's website (www.vwrrc.vt.edu). The website is one of the Water Center's principal outreach tools. During the application period, 104 funds will support the following activities related to Water Center website:

1. Editing and daily maintenance (personnel cost) of the homepage. Daily Water News is a major feature of the Water Center's website. On a daily basis, important regional water issues are extracted from regional newspapers and posted on Water Center website.

2. Scanning and posting of Water Center publications on the Water Center website. While recent publications of the Water Center are created in a .pdf file and posted immediately on the web, past publications (several hundred since 1965) are available only as hard copies. There are numerous requests for these publications. Scanning and posting of all Water Center publications will reduce printing and mailing costs.

3. The Water Center is developing a web-based inventory of all its publications noted above and its past and present research projects and reports. Funds through 104 program are used to provide personnel support for database management, and website maintenance of hardware and software to ensure that the Center's website capabilities are state of the art.
