Welcome to our new and improved Materials resource database. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the new layout.
You may have noticed over the past months some changes and improvements in our website. These changes have been designed to increase the overall usability of our site and to provide you with access to a much greater wealth of information. We can now provide you with details on over 2200 resources related to Materials Science and Engineering, more richly described than ever before.
It is now possible to search through our systems using four distinct new routes. Your initial search will always be for Learning and Teaching Resources, though once this has been completed the extra three options will present themselves to you:
Each search method will generate different types of results, all related to the particular terms you have entered.
You will be presented initially with a brief view of each resource description. You then have the option to either view the full description or simply click the link to be taken directly to the resource.
You are also invited to add any comments you may have on a particular resource, which you believe may be of use to our other users (all comments need to be approved).
By default your search results will always include resources aimed at Higher Education and HE in FE. We have now added the facility for you to search through resources for schools. This facility will harvest all relevant records marked at Key Stage 4 (or equivalent) and below.
If you have exhausted our search options and not found anything useful or relevant to your work, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you further.
If you have produced any resources that you would be willing to share, please contact us and we will be happy to add links and descriptions to our system. Additionally, if you know of any useful resources that do not appear to be in our database please let us know.
