The Conflict Resolution Education Connection is cataloging additional content beyond our starting collection. Contributors may want to review our general site policies and consider what form of release rights they are prepared to provide. To accomplish our mission, materials submitted must be released for general use, with appropriate restrictions as provided below. Here is a draft of the form we are preparing for content submitters.
Title of Resource Document
We will need a title that is reasonably descriptive to be used in our search catalog.
Description of the Resource
Here we need a couple of sentences describing the resource so that users can decide whether it meets their needs. It helps to mention if it is a word document, pdf, webpage, or powerpoint slideshow in the description. This information is used as our abstract.
Location of Resource (URL)
If the item is uploaded and stored in our repository, we can create the URL ourselves. If we are pointing to a resource on your site, we need the direct address to the resource itself in the form “http://www.yoursite.org/theitem.html”
First and last names for all primary authors of the document are listed
The name of the organization that has created/contributed the content is provided here. Ideally, we will also have full organizational information on the group in our directory so that we can link people to it if they want to find out more.
