The creators of the Digital Library for Earth System Education have corralled links to thousands of sites in fields such as geology, meteorology, planetary science, ecology, and oceanography. Run by a coalition of academics, librarians, and teachers, the collection provides capsule descriptions of educational Web sites submitted by users and aimed at every level, from elementary school student to professional scientist. Search for graduate-level info on seismology, for example, and you'll get 12 links that range from the U.S. Geological Survey's earthquake monitoring center to course notes for a geophysics class. The site is also a meeting place for anyone interested in Web-based education, with resources such as conference announcements and discussion groups.
