The goal of this project is to create a model for a collaborative, multi-state, accessible information community to the visually impaired. This project was originally conceived and developed by the Illinois State Library, but is currently being coordinated by the Minnesota Braille and Talking Book Library and the Perkins Braille and Talking Book Library in Massachusetts.
The software being used to provide the InfoEyes service includes QuestionPoint software from the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) for management and email and Talking Communities software for live reference, text chat, and online meetings.
