The Digital Water Library Project (DWEL): A NSDL K–12 Collection
DWEL is the first major collection building effort to bring high quality, K-12 resources into the Digital Library for Earth Systems Education (DLESE). Efforts are currently underway to provide teachers, students and informal educators with easy, searchable access to over 500 exemplary digital resources related to the science, policy and economics of water by the end of 2003. A discovery tool will allow users to search the library catalogue by content area, grade level, resource type and the national science standards to obtain the resources they desire. The selection of these exemplary resources, which best support teaching along core science concepts, is being conducted by experienced, practicing K-12 teachers who best know the needs of their peers and their students. Learn more about how this project is being run, what ways it can benefit teachers and students, and most importantly, how you can influence its development.
