The Communities for Physics and Astronomy Digital Resources in Education project, or ComPADRE, is a joint collaboration of the AAPT, AAS, AIP, APS, and SPS to create and maintain digital collections of high quality educational materials in physics and astronomy.
ComPADRE consists of:
ComPADRE invites those interested in physics and astronomy education or digital collections to explore collaborating with us. Potential collaborations include:
Submit your online resources to a ComPADRE collection!
We use "federated search" to share resources not only in ComPADRE collections, but also in other digital libraries. Our approach complies with well-defined metadata standards, and we are open to sharing and exchanging data with other collections.
ComPADRE can provide assistance with new collections. We can assist in or manage many technical aspects of collection development, including design, database development, metadata, and functional implementation. We will also help with grant-writing and finding funding for new collections.
If you are interested in collaborating, or for more information about ComPADRE, please contact us.
