The Analytical Sciences Digital Library, ASDL, collects, catalogs, links and publishes peer reviewed web-based discovery materials pertinent to innovations in curricular development and supporting technical resources in the analytical sciences. The ASDL website (www.asdlib.org) is one of several collections initially funded by NSF's National Science Digital Library (NSDL) program, and is currently supported by the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the American Chemical Society. ASDL grew out of discussions at regional and national meetings on ways to implement recommendations from NSF-sponsored workshops that evaluated teaching practices in the analytical curriculum. These recommendations can be found in the workshop report Curricular Developments in the Analytical Sciences, available as a pdf.
Welcome to ASDL!
The ASDL is comprised of four sites: Collection, Community , JASDL, and Active Learning. We hope you will take time to explore each of these sites, and that you find materials or information that are useful in your practice of the analytical sciences. If you find a broken link or other problem, or if you have suggestions to make ASDL better, please contact us. Thanks!
