World Library of Science Aims to Open Science to All Students
UNESCO launched the World Library of Science (WLoS) in collaboration with Macmillan Science and Education. This free, online education resource is designed to give students around the world equal access to the latest science information. It also allows students to participate in discussions with their peers in a shared learning environment.
Along with a community hub to facilitate sharing and the creation of online classes, the WLoS has more than 300 digital articles, 25 ebooks, and 70-plus videos from Nature Education, the educational division of Nature Publishing Group (NPG). The content can be distributed and tailored for any educational or noncommercial use.
“The content of the World Library of Science is meant to inspire more learning and curiosity, and help train students and teachers alike, both in the content and cultural impacts of scientific discovery. Future plans involve expansion of life and physical science subjects, as well as translation of resources into multiple languages,” the WLoS’s About page states.
