The CAUSEweb digital library: a diverse resource for statistics educators and education researchers
This talk will highlight CAUSEweb.org, a digital library for statistics instructors operated by the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE). CAUSE is a U.S. organization whose mission is to support and advance undergraduate statistics education in four target areas: resources, professional development, outreach, and research. CAUSEweb was launched in August, 2004 and is now home to approximately ten thousand unique visitors per month. CAUSEweb features a searchable annotated listing of approximately 3000 reference articles in statistics education, more than 1800 high quality resources for teaching statistics, approximately 300 fun items (cartoons, songs, jokes, quotes, poems, word puzzles, or videos) for free use by statistics instructors, audio and video recordings of a twice-monthly webinar series, a regular E-News feature, and a growing collection of refereed items providing the core of the library’s holdings. Importantly, CAUSEweb contains mirrored versions of other important statistics education digital collections.
