  5. 5. 5 INTRODUCTION “Education” and “library” are two inseparable-indivisible concepts, both being fundamentally and synchronically related to and co-existent with each other. One cannot be separated from the other, and the existence of one is an impossibility without the other. Science education is the field concerned with sharing science content and process with individuals not traditionally considered part of the scientific community. Among all standards of education, the field of science education plays a vital role due to the changing world scenarios. Science education is the basic factor for modern world technological development. Web resources are virtual files that are stored in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM database and that you can retrieve by using a unique URL address. The concept of a web resource has evolved during the web history, from the early notion of static addressable documents or files, to a more generic and abstract definition. Any students use libraries as the medium for assessing information. So by organizing web resources for assessing information simply directs us to digital libraries. A digital library is a collection of documents in organized electronic form, available on the Internet or on CD-ROM (compact-disk read-only memory) disks. Depending on the specific library, a user may be able to access magazine articles, books, papers, images, sound files, and videos. So the web resources have a large role for assessing information in science education.
  6. 6. 6 SCIENCE LIBRARY A well equipped science library under the charge of a science teacher should be set up in the school. The science teacher can equip the library depending on the availability of funds and accommodation facilities for the purpose. The selection of books is difficult task and science teachers can solve it by making use it by fairly exhaustive list of science books available from various publishers. There are three important roles are there for library in education. In the first place, libraries provide access to education by teaching information skills, by providing leadership and expertise in the use of information and information technologies, and by participating in networks that enhance access to resources outside the school or community. Secondly, libraries help ensure equity in education by: (1) helping children start school ready to learn; (2) addressing the needs of student most at risk; (3) providing access to information and ideas unimpeded by social, cultural, and economic constraints; (4) ensuring free and equal access to information and ideas without geographic constraints; and (5) helping students stay free of drugs and violence, in an environment conducive to learning. A third role is that of impacting academic achievement for individuals and assisting them in lifelong learning, preparing individuals for productive employment, promoting the enjoyment of reading, promoting functional literacy among adults. Every education system such as a science education has practical importance. Even though science subjects are relied on demonstrational manner, the basics are always obtained from various books. So libraries are those which provide a basement for all these studies. school library (or a school library media center) is a library within a school where students, staff, and often, parents of a public or private school have access to a variety of resources. The goal of the school library media center is to ensure that all members of the school community
  7. 7. 7 have equitable access "to books and reading, to information. The school library exists to provide a range of learning opportunities for both large and small groups as well as individuals with a focus on intellectual content, information literacy, and the learner. In addition to classroom visits with collaborating teachers, the school library also serves as a place for students to do independent work.
  8. 8. 8 ORGANIZING WEB RESOURCES FOR ASSESSING INFORMATION But in this modern era where internet is at every individuals finger tip, learners may not be interested in spending more time in libraries where books which they need to refer is to be found out from the large collection and do a detailed look throughout the pages. Since the world is running in high speed, they may feel inconvenience with that. Due to this, we introduced the concept of digital library. In a digital library, we are used to organize web resources for assessing information. A Digital Library is a special library with a focused collection of digital objects that can include text, visual material, audio material, video material, stored as electronic media formats (as opposed to print, microform, or other media), along with means for organizing, storing, and retrieving the files and media contained in the library collection. The electronic content may be stored locally, or accessed remotely via computer networks. An electronic library is a type of information retrieval system. In the past few years, procedures for digitizing books at high speed and comparatively low cost have improved considerably with the result that it is now possible to digitize millions of books per year. Traditional libraries are limited by storage space; digital libraries have the potential to store much more information, simply because digital information requires very little physical space to contain it.[12] As such, the cost of maintaining a digital library can be much lower than that of a traditional library. A physical library must spend large sums of money paying for staff, book maintenance, rent, and additional books. Digital libraries may reduce or, in some instances, do away with these fees. Both types of library require cataloging input to allow users to locate and retrieve material. Digital libraries may be more willing to adopt innovations in technology providing users with improvements in electronic and audio book technology as well as presenting new forms of communication such as
  9. 9. 9 wikis and blogs; conventional libraries may consider that providing online access to their catalog is sufficient. An important advantage to digital conversion is increased accessibility to users. They also increase availability to individuals who may not be traditional patrons of a library, due to geographic location or organizational affiliation. So organizing these web resources are the major part in digitization of libraries. That means we want make available computers, high speed internet connection, wi-fi hot spots, a proper user interfaces etc. Digital Library Section in Public Library, Kollam.
  10. 10. 10 CONCLUSION The concept of science library is an important factor in education system of modern era. Science libraries have key role in improving learner’s interest and attraction towards science knowledge. So existence of a science library is always considered by every educational institutions. But in these days on this digitized world, libraries are also on the path of digitization. This means that, we organize web resources for assessing information. This will increase the quality and quantity of information that is available on that library.
