The NSDL Project Archive provides access to project assets generated by the National Science Digital Library community. The archive includes open source software downloads, marketing and communications materials, and websites created by and for the project. NSDL was primarily administered and developed by a team of researchers and staff from Cornell University and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). This core team collaborated with many other institutions and sub-projects in creating the repository. NSDL.org continues to be an online science library with links to high quality science, technology, engineering, and math resources for K-12 teachers, faculty, librarians, students and informal learners. The NSDL Project was funded through a series of grants made by the Directorate for Education and Human Resources at the National Science Foundation.
An electronic newsletter published bi-weekly from 2001-2009 by the NSDL project. Over 100 issues of news, events, bookmarks, and inspiration were shared with the NSDL community. The link goes to the archived version of the newsletter issues.
This site was created as a place for NSDL participants to “tell the story” of how they think NSDL was formed, grew and is continuing to grow. And for the community to discuss and learn from these reflections. There is a link to a preserved version and to the live version.

Using NCore OnRamp, a content management and communications system, and Expert Voices, an online magazine for K5 teachers was created that included twenty issues about polar science topics commonly found in the elementary curriculum. Content includes standards-based science and content-rich literacy learning across five departments (In the Field: Scientists at Work, Professional Learning, Science and Literacy, Across the Curriculum, Polar News and Notes and Podcasts). This record has the BPPB website files attached to it. There is also a link to the OSU hosted version of the website.
The content and code for an NSDL organizational website with information about how to use the NSDL Technical Network Services (TNS) along with links to hands-on documentation and and use cases. This gateway web site connects NSDL communities of Pathways, projects, and partners to technical services and support for networked resource discovery, contribution, cataloging, harvest, and access to blogs, and wikis. This record has the TNS website files attached to it. There is also a link to the archived version the TNS website.
NCore is the the NSDL open-source suite of tools and services used for creating production digital libraries, such as NSDL.org, repository systems, and content-rich STEM learning environments. A core function of the NSDL Technical Network Services (TNS) is to support, maintain, and extend this platform to meet the evolving needs of the NSDL and STEM communities. This record has the NCore website files attached to it. There is also a link to the archived version the NCore website.
