This talk was presented at the 2009 International Union of Physiological Societies (IUPS) meeting in Kyoto, Japan, July 31, 2009. Abstract: The American Physiological Society (APS) Archive of Teaching Resources (www.apsarchive.org) launched in April 2002 as a venue for colleague-to-colleague sharing of educational materials. Since then, the Archive has grown into a collaborative digital library with resources catalogued by APS and other scientific societies that shares its metadata with both the U.S. National Science Foundation Life Sciences Portal (www.biosciednet.org) and the U.S. National Science Digital Library (www.nsdl.org). In 2008, the Archive was redesigned with new features for partner customization, easier submission and review, and user collaboration tools. While digital libraries are often simply distribution points for published materials, the Archive offers opportunities for collaboration, sharing, and improvement of teaching materials among educators around the world. This presentation will provide both examples of how the Archive has been used for colleague-to-colleague sharing in the past and will outline future opportunities for international collaboration and use.
