Developing a Digital National Library for Undergraduate Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology Education. Report of a Workshop.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Center for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education.
In collaboration with the National Research Council's (NRC's) Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, the Center for Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Education responded to a request from the National Science Foundation (NSF) by forming a project steering committee consisting of representatives from the NRC's four postsecondary boards and committees. The Steering Committee commissioned 10 "white papers" from individuals with expertise in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education, technological aspects of digital libraries, library science, and economic and legal aspects of this rapidly evolving area of knowledge and research. These commissioned papers served as the basis for plenary and break-out discussions at a workshop that was held at the National Academy of Sciences on August 7-8, 1997. Issues considered included curricular, pedagogical, and user issues; logistic and technology issues; and economic and legal issues. Appendices include the commissioned papers, workshop agenda, and a list of workshop participants and NSF observers. (Contains 14 references.) (ASK)
