Materials Science Resources

Today’s Resources in Materials Science

Highlights from the roundtable overview of new & updated materials resources.

OERs:

CORE-Materials — many use creative commons license, although a few are copyrighted. Not really easy to search, but resources are interesting, if not too advanced.

MIT OpenCourseWare–Can find graduate and undergraduate resources by topic, instructional approach, and type of materials used.

nanoHub–Community portal and open resources for nano science. Includes simulation tools and learning modules, as well as a workspace to collaborate.

 

Other resources:

TRAIL – Technical Report Archive and Image Library:  unrestricted access to over 61,000 digitized federal technical reports.

MatWeb: searchable database of materials properties.

We finished the meeting with a roundtable discussion on how we use non-materials focused resources to find materials information, but I had to leave early to go to another session. I’ll post the slides here when the get published.
