Abstract : This research project investigated establishing a World Wide Web (WWW) site dedicated to the United States Air Force Information Resource Management (IRM) community. The project determined guidelines for successful, appropriate format and content for such a site. To discover what benefits the IRM community might achieve, the project explored those benefits achieved or expected to be achieved by the business community and by government agencies with established WWW sites. The project also attempted to define an average profile of active duty IRM community Internet and WWW users. The above objectives were accomplished through a literature review and through the use of a prototype WWW site. Guidelines uncovered through the literature review were used in establishing a prototype site. The prototype site offered a variety of features, including indices of links to IRM-relevant WWW sites and a WWW-based discussion forum. To obtain feedback from community members, the site provided both an embedded electronic mail link to the author and a WWW fill-in form. (AN)
