SC is the International Conference for
 High Performnance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 13-19, 2010

Physics: Digital Libraries

SESSION: Physics: Digital Libraries

EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education

TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Speaker(s):Norman Chonacky


Digital libraries offer a convenient and effective way for physics and computational sciences educational communities to support the development of community-based physics materials and to archive reviewed, community-authored products. Although not restricted to computational products and their production, within this system there are a growing number of collections included in Pathways of the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). As such they are networked together as parts of the NSDL and employ cross-referencing. Physics teachers at all levels can use them to find resources for the classroom. We will introduce the audience to a number of these collections, including the Ucomp and Quantum Exchange collections of AAPT's ComPADRE Pathway, and its Open Source Physics archive. The Shodor Foundation hosts the Computational Science Education Reference Desk, which contains classroom resources for an even broader range of disciplines. Participants will have the opportunity for hands-on experience accessing the computational materials from various libraries.
