Dr. Curtis' Web site selected as an NSF resource

Dr. Anthony Curtis

Dr. Anthony Curtis (Mass Communications) was notified recently that the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) created a collection record for his "Space Today Online" Web site.

NSDL is the National Science Foundation's (NSF) online library of resources for science, technology, engineering and mathematics education and research.

Its resources and information are organized to fit the needs and interests of faculty, administrators and librarians working with college and university students as well as teachers working with K-12 students. Criteria for inclusion are quality, accuracy, appropriateness and reliability.

NSDL operations are collaborative efforts of Cornell and Columbia universities and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. The NSDL community includes universities, museums, libraries, research labs, federal agencies and professional societies.

Dr. Curtis founded Space Today as a print news magazine in 1986. In 1994, he recast it as the online publication Space Today Online or STO.

Dr. John M. Saylor, director of collection development for NSDL, referred to STO in his correspondence as "your great site." Space Today Online may be viewed on the Web at www.spacetoday.org.
