Hello Curriculum Directors,
RIMS, Utah's online database of reviews of instructional materials,  is being rewritten.  Our programming staff has requested a list of "stories" the describe uses of the database for specified users.  I have listed below those that may pertain to you.   Please look over this list and let me know if you have additions, edits, or deletions.
We are planning for major improvements in the database and the programming staff have urged us to "shoot for the stars" as we think of a new software offering.  Your input will be greatly appreciated.
