NSDL Materials Digital Library Wiki:About
From NSDL Materials Digital Library Wiki
The Materials Digital Library Pathway  is a consortium of organizations building an information infrastructure and assuming stewardship of significant content and services to support the integration of education and research in materials science (MS) as part of the NSF supported National Science Digital Library . The target community of MatDL is materials science undergraduate and graduate students, educators, and researchers. This Pathways project facilitates the dissemination of resources generated by government-funded MS collaborations, such as Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams, Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers, and International Materials Institutes, by providing tools, like the Soft Matter Wiki , to describe, manage, exchange, archive, and disseminate data among national and international government-funded materials teams and centers. By serving as a dedicated hub for the materials community to support communication and interactions, MatDL offers the opportunity to create learning objects based on recent research, as well as convenient access to shared resources and learning objects.
NSDL Materials Digital Library Pathway (MatDL) is part of the National Science Digital Library project and is supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) grant DUE-0532831.
