The Chemical Education Digital Library aims to be a resource for finding your place in the broader community. This collection was born from the passion of many people from many different communities. Now that the Library has become a broader resource, this page includes many communities that worked together to build these resources, but also others that have grown since this Library's founding or alongside. Please do Contact Us if you have a community of interest to the broader community of Chemistry Education Scholars.
The ChemEd DL has a multitude of specific resources for helping you to find media and lessons for teaching chemistry. There are three resources that bring many of these resources into the classroom in a easy-to-use fashion. .
This interactive periodic table has videos, interactive models of crystal structures, and a multitude of curated and accurate data about each element.
JSmol is used to build interactive molecule viewers that visualize high-level quantum calculation data in an easy-to-use tool.
Specifically geared toward the High School Teacher, this site categorizes lesson plans by standards and uses a lot of the ChemEd DL resources in these outlined lesson plans. By far the most popular of our resources!
There are multiple ways to find resources on the ChemEd DL. The search bar below will search this site, but resources may be easier to find by searching our database, or by using our textbook-table-of-contents-style search: T.I.G.E.R. For our High School teachers, we recommend starting with ChemTeacher.

ChemEd DL seeks to provide exemplary resources for chemistry teachers and students—resources that are versatile and reliable tools that span all aspects of chemical education, from middle school science through college-level classes and topics. Our collection includes interactive simulations, tutorials, activities, reference materials, images, video and even more..
Resources at ChemEd DL are grouped into collections. Collections for different areas of chemistry (general, organic, physical), for various educational levels (K–12, higher education), for educational settings (laboratory, lecture classroom), and several others exist at ChemEd DL. We welcome additional collections and you are encouraged to suggest or even curate other chemistry collections.
