The Gender & Science Digital Library is a cutting-edge, collaborative project which will result in a network of learning environments and resources for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The program is aimed at meeting the needs of  students and teachers at all levels--K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and lifelong learning--in both individual and collaborative settings, as well as formal and informal modes. The primary objective of the GSDL is to create a high-quality, interactive library of gender and science STEM resources for K-12, higher education (community college and university), women's studies, teacher preparation programs, and informal learning environments.
