Who’s in? And who’s out? These are the questions regularly asked of Database Curators who are responsible for the maintenance of human services databases in accordance with the AIRS Standards for Professional Information and Referral. This course provides insight into how to make those decisions. It also provides important background information for Information & Referral (I&R) managers and for everyone within the I&R field who needs a better understanding and appreciation of the composition of resource databases. The course covers the challenges of deciding what human service organizations and programs should be included in a resource database and which should be excluded, taking into account the practical reality of balancing the community needs of the resource database with the means available to effectively maintain it.
