Abstract: The emergence of the World Wide Web (WWW) in the early 1990's as a vi-
able means for national and international sharing and re-use of education materials fun-
damentally changed our view of the way education and learning can be delivered. Inter-
net-mediated learning environments provide mechanisms for the learner to be anyone,
anywhere, at anytime. Although educators are developing an enormous quantity of mate-
rials for use through the Web, potential users face a daunting challenge when it comes to
locating them, evaluating their quality and using them effectively. Understanding and
overcoming this challenge is crucial if we are to fully exploit the opportunity to improve
learning that these new resources have created
We are leading the development of an alliance to develop a National Science, Mathe-
matics, Engineering and Technology Education (SMETE) Digital Library at
