Assignment #1 - Assigned 4/3/96; due 4/10/96

Economic Development Information Sources on the World Wide Web


This assignment aims to identify and review economic development planning and policy information sites and sources available on the World Wide Web (WWW). Students will individually search and document WWW sites under specific headings. The results will then be posted to the economic development list-serv and subsequently collated, so that the information sources can be shared by all and used in later assignments during the class.



Each student will be assigned one or more headings in class. In total, you should identify between 10-15 sites for the headings assigned to you. Choose your final list of sites to maximize the quality and diversity of information. For each site that you identify, please provide (a) a title; (b) page sponsor (e.g. Economic Development Society or Iowa State Department of Commerce); (c) URL address (i.e. http://…); and (d) a 4-8 line review, in your own words, of the content and value of the site, e.g.

This assignment should be prepared electronically and submitted as a text (.txt) document or browseable (.htm) file and posted to the economic development list-serv by mailing to econ-dev@list.gatech.edu
