MatDL: Integrating Digital Libraries into Scientific Practice (23 Aug 2004)
New approaches in materials science are enabling scientists to design materials, assembling molecules from the bottom up. Microstructures of these materials can provide visual data to a student or researcher, helping him or her gain ideas to design structures with specific properties and functionalities. However, how does the scientist generating the microstructures describe and attach the necessary information so that the student can find the picture and understand how the structure was assembled? How does the materials science educator bring together teaching resources to train the next generation of scientists about new ways to conduct research?
