    A Blueprint for Integrated Access to Environmental Information 

    The Blueprint for Integrated Access to Environmental Information will guide Minnesota's development and integration of environmental information resources in electronic media. Examining accurate description and cataloging of environmental information, the Foundations Project also looks at methods and processes for gathering, retrieval and retention of electronic media. 

    Information Needs Assessment 

    This report asked consumers of environmental information about the kinds of  information required to augment their interests as well as business or recreational needs. With focus from a consumer's perspective, Foundations seeks to make relevant information more available to those using the resources of the many Minnesota state agencies involved in the project.
