A second goal was to encourage the use of electronic communication to convey information throughout the
department and to the department's clients. Anticipated barriers to implementation are equipment and networking
costs, and the time and expense of training. The Electronic Communication Committee has been formed with
Cathy Morris serving as chair.
Representatives from across the department have worked to develop plans and recommendations for agency-wide
initiatives for providing increased electronic communication internally and to our clients. The recommendations will be
presented to the Secretary later this year.
Throughout the department there have been major steps taken toward providing enhanced electronic resources for
North Carolina's citizens. Among these are
- Increased reliance on electronic distribution of internal communications such as schedules and vacancy postings
- Growing Internet access to information about departmental activities and programs
- Increased electronic access to information about the collections within the following repositories:
