Located at the Department of Communication at the University of Washington, the Center for Communication and Civic Engagement (CCCE) is dedicated to develop new areas of citizen involvement in politics and social life. Its primary focus is to understand how new information and communication technologies (ICTs) can supplement more traditional forms of communication and facilitate new forms of participation. Its website offers classification and detailed annotations to a large sets of records, concerning infos on the Center’s projects and staff as well as publications and conference programs, with high updating frequency. It also gives access to a scientific and technical literature database, mainly focused on how ICTs can be applied to solve social problems in developing countries. The website provides project reports, academic research, working papers, pre-prints, committee proceedings, scientific and technical documentation. Records are provided free of charge, searchable through a sophisticated search engine and downloadable in their original formats. In addition, some navigational facilities such as a sitemap and a clear categorization, support item location and immediate orientation.
