  • William Arms: Bill Arms has played key roles in many digital library programs and was one of the creators of the NSDL. From 2000 through 2005 he was a Principal Investigator of the Core Integration Project and led the Cornell team, which was primarily responsible for the technical architecture of He is a professor of Computer Science at Cornell University, where he is now a member of the Web Lab project, a joint effort of Cornell and the Internet Achives to provide data and computing tools for research about the Web and information on the Web. Before coming to Cornell University, he was Vice President for the Academic Service division at Carnegie Mellon; he has also held appointments at Dartmouth College and the British Open University. Read Bill’s essay, Implementation and Innovation in the NSDL.
  • Laura Bartolo: Laura Bartolo is a professor in the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University. She is the principal investigator for the Materials Digital Library, a NSDL pathway for content and services needed across the materials community and in particular for its targeted audience of materials undergraduate and graduate students, educators, and researchers. Read Laura’s essay, “NSDL-Style” Networks: Connecting Across Audiences & Disciplines.
  • David Fulker: Dave Fulker is currently Unidata Director Emeritus at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). Previously, he was the NSDL Executive Director at Core Integration from 2001-2004. Dave retired in 2005 after serving UCAR in various capacities for over 38 years, including 18 years as the founding director of Unidata. Before he joined NSDL, Dave spent 18 years directing the Unidata Program Center at the University Consortium for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). Dave’s many accomplishments included his work to enable universities, federal agencies and others in the atmospheric community to easily acquire and use real-time atmospheric and related data. Read Dave’s essay, Collaboration, Alignment and Leadership.
  • Dave Mogk: David Mogk is a professor of geology at Montana State University. He has worked on the development of the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) and the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). He has served as a PI or co-PI on a number of NSDL and NSDL-related projects. Dave has served as a Program Director in the Division of Undergraduate Education at NSF (1995-96), is past Chair of the Education Committee and Education Division of the Geological Society of America, and is a past speaker in the National Association of Geoscience Teacher Distinguished Speaker program. His research interests range from the evolution of ancient (>2.5 billion year old) continental crust in SW Montana, petrologic processes in the mid-crust, spectroscopy of mineral surfaces and the search for life in extreme environments (Yellowstone hot springs to Lake Vostok ice core). Read Dave’s essay, Integrating Research and Education.
  • Mimi Recker: Mimi Recker is a professor in the Department of Instructional Technology and Learning Science in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University. She is the principal investigator for Instructional Architect, a NSDL service that allows users to find, use, and share learning resources from the NSDL and the Web in order to create engaging and interactive educational web pages. When not enjoying the outstanding outdoor recreation available in the mountains of northern Utah, she teaches classes and conducts research on the role that distributed information technologies can play in supporting and enhancing learning. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and also held academic appointments at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, and in the College of Computing, at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Read Mimi’s essay, An NSDL Retrospective: The Case of the Instructional Architect.
  • Frank Wattenberg: Frank Wattenberg is a professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the US Military Academy. In the late 1990’s, while at NSF, he was a key participant in workshops and meetings that led to the formation of the NSDL program. He has long been a developer of mathematics teaching and learning tools, and an experimenter with pedagogies that make effective use of computers and technology. Read Frank’s essay, Reflections on NSDL.
  • David Yaron: Dave Yaron is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the principal investigator for the Chemistry Collective, an affiliate of the ChemEd Digital Library, which is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, and tutorials which can be incorporated into a variety of teaching approaches as pre-labs, alternatives to textbook homework, and in-class activities for individuals or teams.
