National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Principal Investigator
Over the past two years, the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) project has built an organizational and technological framework to support the collaborative creation of content and context centered on the high quality resources in the library. This briefing will describe how NSDL has evolved and present the new organizational structure and technical platform. It will also describe how NSDL is leveraging open-source social networking and collaboration tools to build active, subject-focused communities of library contributors, while still preserving the best characteristics of traditional digital libraries.
