This paper describes the development, implementation and assessment of an innovative approach to the dissemination of evidence- based research to clinical supervision through the use of Webbased technology. The Substance Abuse Treatment On-line Library: Focus on Clinical Supervision, known as the SATOL Project, was developed by an interdisciplinary faculty group at New York University. The findings of this study document the positive impact of SATOL in helping supervisors feel more capable of mentoring and supporting their staff, in better assessing and evaluating the quality of services provided by their supervisees, and in applying empirical evidence to their daily clinical supervision practice. Limitations of the project include the short time-frame and small sample size. This model is applicable to Web-based transmission of evidence-based knowledge of other content areas.
