Incountry Resource Centers (IRC) are vehicles for sharing technical information among persons working to further development goals, and the workshop described in this trainer's manual is designed to help local Peace Corps staff and/or volunteers to establish, expand, or improve an IRC appropriate to the needs and conditions of their country. Throughout the workshop, the participants will learn how to take full advantage of the Peace Corps Information Collection and Exchange (ICE) and its extensive resources by incorporating ICE services into an IRC to provide the technical information needed by volunteers and staff in their work. The workshop has 7 sessions presented over 3.5 days; each session is divided into two 1.5 hour segments, and alternate session designs are provided. The workshop design is flexible so that it may be adapted to local conditions, e.g., availability of staff or space. Designed for ease of use by workshop facilitator(s), the manual provides a description of each individual session which includes a list of goals, an overview, a list of objectives, suggestions for trainer preparation, a list of necessary materials, and step-by-step discussion of procedures for conducting that session. Trainer notes provide background information or suggestions, and master copies of necessary handouts are provided in a separate section following the session descriptions. (CGD)
