Special invite to speak to the US Environmental Protection Agency…
Typically for anyone who has ever tried to find, well, anything on a government website has found it is easier to find what they were looking for Goolge or Yahoo. But, every once in awhile someone understands that it takes more than just technology to serve good results. And with that I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been selected to speak at the EPA Search Summit and will be able to advise the on their EPA’s future Search Strategy, www.epa.gov.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is gathering a small panel of experts for a Search Summit at the EPA’s offices in Arlington, VA on September 21, 2009. The purpose of the summit is to discuss the vision, goals and technical alternatives for developing an EPA Search Strategy.
The EPA is currently analyzing the way it shares information with the public. In the Agency’s opening round of research, a broad spectrum of participants identified their inability to find environmental information, particularly using the Agency’s search engine, as a major source of dissatisfaction. As a result of these findings, SRA International is working with EPA to develop a Search Strategy that will address the entire ecosystem for finding Agency information, including content, metadata, processes, partnerships, technology and policy.
