Washington, DC.—The National Science Digital Library (NSDL) has deemed the ActionBioscience.org collection an “exemplary resource of collections and services, organized in support of science education at all levels,” http://nsdl.org/. The collection is now listed in the library. NSDL is a resource focused on education in science, technology, engineering, and math with the aim to “both deepen and extend science literacy through access to materials and methods that reveal the nature of the physical universe and the intellectual means by which we discover and understand it.”
ActionBioscience.org is listed in other digital libraries, notably ENC Online, DLESE, the Internet SCOUT Project, and ICON.
