WHAT THE DEC CAN DO FOR YOU

SEARCH
Members of the USAID community can use keywords, phrases, or more advanced searchtechniques to find resources or browse special collections in the DEC. Users can download their search results, review detailed bibliographic information or perform more complex sorting and filtering to find just the right results. The DEC holds monthly webinars highlighting search techniques.

SUBMIT
Documents and development assistance project materials produced or funded by USAID must be submitted for inclusion in the DEC, per guidance from the ADS 540. The DEC holds all relevant USAID-funded project and program materials. Most items become available as soon as they are submitted. To learn best practices for submitting materials, join one of the DEC's monthly webinars.

SHARE
To help others find the information they need, the DEC Team encourages USAID community members to share experiences with the DEC and its contents by providing comments, ratings, votes and tags for DEC materials. The DEC makes it easy to share these materials via Facebook and Twitter.
