Educators at all levels may be interested in the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE), a repository of teaching resources covering a range of earth-related subjects. Here, readers will find over 15,000 educational resources which can be searched by keyword and browsed by education level (beginning at elementary through graduate/professional and includes informal education), subject (such as atmospheric science, oceanography, and policy issues), and resource type (including activities, lesson plans, datasets, and audio/visual materials). DLESE also offers a variety of Earth Science Literacy Maps, which it describes as teaching and learning tools that "illustrate connections between concepts and how they build upon one another across grade levels." For developers, DLESE makes available information on its metadata, collection building, and cataloging documentation; its search server and API; and its OAI data provider. The development of DLESE was funded by the National Science Foundation, and it is operated by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the NCAR Library.
