Draft of CDS poster session description:

POSTER ABSTRACT

The poster will present information on the Community Change Resource Bank on RuralXChange (http://ruralxchange.net/communitychange), an online database that aids community development practitioners and local residents in finding resources for analyzing and improving their communities. Specifically, it includes
* reports describing past community development projects (in both rural and non-rural areas) related to economic development, capacity building, infrastructural improvement, strategic planning, and community visioning,
* documents providing information on policy initiatives
* tools and approaches that can be adapted to work in other contexts
* evaluations of programs, strategies, and policies
* information sheets related to community development
Users can access resources using key words. Entries are also coded using the idea of a matrix of type of place and type of intervention which will enable users to do a more targeted search. In addition, this web site allows site visitors to submit their own resources, further enhancing the quality and quantity of information available on the website.
