Featured Web Site: IssueLab
May 01, 2009
Nonprofit organizations generate a wealth of research on a variety of complex social issues that can help us understand the world around us. And they're eager to share. But you have to know where to look. Finding this research – submerged in many nonprofit Web sites – can require huge effort, even for experienced navigators.
That's where IssueLab comes in. Its mission is to make nonprofit research available in one central location and to use online resources and communities to push this information back out. Journalists, academics, researchers, policymakers, and anyone else interested in finding explanations of and solutions to today's most pressing issues have a stake in a resource like IssueLab. From arts and culture to disaster relief to immigration and more, IssueLab is positioning itself to become the online source for nonprofit research.
IssueLab was just recognized by the Webby Awards as an "Official Honoree" – see why at http://www.issuelab.org.
