Summary: Using the National Engineering Education Delivery System
as the Foundation for Building a Test-Bed Digital Library for
Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology Education
Final Report for NSF Grant IIS–9817406
(October 1, 1998 to September 30, 1999; no-cost extension to March 1, 2000)
Findings
1. Developed a test-bed SMETE Digital Library
The results of the activities (described in the Activities Section) confirmed for us the need for,
and value of a science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education (SMETE) digital
library. Because of this we have a deep understanding of the kinds of technological and social
issues that we must address in building a SMETE digital library. We are committed to
developing a national digital library for SMET education that is much more than a static
information repository. Through an alliance of partners we intend to create a dynamic learning
community that promotes and supports SMET education in the 21st
century by providing
educators and learners with seamless access to partner collections and shared services to improve
learning.
2. Results of Focus Groups Activities for the SMETE Digital Library User
Community
The primary concern of the focus group participants was having the ability to find good learning
