National Science Digital Library – Chemistry Resources
Live on the web – it’s the Periodic Table! The new home page of Chemistry Pathway includes a point-and-click guide to each element, along with several other features that make web resources on chemistry easier to use. “ChemEd DLib will create new communities centered around different educational levels,” says Pathway PI John Moore. “It will provide resources in different sub-disciplines of chemistry and different pedagogical areas, such as problem-based learning.” The new site makes digital resources on chemistry much easier to find, and it gives a prominent position to the award-winning “Chemistry Comes Alive!” videos, with their slow-motion presentations of fires, explosions, and other chemical reactions.
