Announcement: The operation of NSDL has been transferred to ISKME's OER Commons (effective December, 2014) - Read the news release.
This documentation describes the policies, procedures, and services that existed while NSDL was operated by UCAR.
The National Science Digital Library is made up of information about thousands of high-quality online educational resources. This information comes from users like you, and is organized into metadata records. This wiki is intended to explain this process so that you will know how to submit resource information to the library (whether it's a single educational resource or a collection of them), and how to use the library's metadata in downstream applications.
This wiki is intended to complement, and often redirects to, the For Developers - APIs and Software Products wiki.
