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. 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.
