Where to start looking for digital learning materials


Thank you for participating in our research on the use of digital materials and collections in education, if you aren't a partcipant and found this page, welcome. Here is the list of libraries that we promised to get you started. You will notice it is Science/Technlogy heavy, but at the end of the list you will also find libraries and gateways to resources for other fields. And, MERLOT, one of the first links, is a multidisciplinary digital library. This is just a starter list, but there is plenty to look at here.
