Catalog of Aquatic Invasive Species Education/Outreach Materials

Portland State University has developed an online catalog of aquatic invasive species (AIS) education and outreach materials.
This searchable inventory of AIS outreach materials is available to all users and has a dynamic web interface that allows registered users to input their own education and outreach materials as well as having a peer review and ratings system for material evaluation to help maintain a high standard for submissions. New users may wish to browse through the system before using the search features to get a better idea of the types of materials available. Organizations that have developed outreach tools that are available for distribution are encouraged to register and use the dynamic interface to upload a record of their own materials.

In addition to the inventory of materials, they are in the process of developing an image gallery where AIS images can be downloaded for non-commercial use in the development of new materials.
