A National Science Digital Library Pathways for Biological Sciences, the BEN Collaborative was established in 1999 by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) with 11 other professional societies and coalitions. Since its inception, the BEN Collaborative has grown from its original 11 collaborators, and is continuing to expand.

BEN resources have been reviewed by the individual societies for standards of quality and accuracy. Although each BEN collaborator has unique review criteria, overall you will find resources that are scientifically accurate and educationally sound. Using BEN, you can easily conduct interdisciplinary searches across the diverse biological sciences topics covered by the BEN Collaborators.

The BEN Collaborative overall mission is not only to provide seamless access to e-resources but to serve as a catalyst for strengthening teaching and learning in the biological sciences. Visit the teaching strategies page for up to date information on strategies, approaches, and methods for teaching biological sciences. Noteworthy news on the "News and Announcements" page and the calendar keep you up to date on the breaking news and events.

Get engaged and participate in the BEN community! You are invited to participate in the development of the BEN Collaborative through the contribution of teaching resources or participation in the BEN Scholars Program. BEN Scholars promote the use of digital libraries and inquiry-based learning in higher education biological sciences lecture and laboratory courses.

Although initially focused on biological sciences undergraduate education, most of the BEN Collaborators previously planned their digital libraries to include high school and higher education resources and have professional development programs at multiple levels. BEN resources have been reviewed by the individual societies for standards of quality and accuracy. Although each BEN collaborator has unique review criteria, overall you will find resources that are scientifically accurate and educationally sound.
