ERIN: A Portal to Resources for Higher Education in Neuroscience
ERIN, Educational Resources in Neuroscience, is the Society for Neuroscience's web portal to selected, high quality materials for higher education. A Board of Editors approves resources after describing them and classifying them by topic, subtopic, media type, author, and appropriate educational level. Some resources are also accompanied by reviews and ratings from faculty who have used the resource. These features make a search of ERIN far more useful than a typical Google search. ERIN's development was funded by the National Science Foundation with a three-year grant to SfN. Along the way, various unexpected problems arose and solutions were found, many of which are described in this overview of ERIN's history and the various decisions that were made in its design and development.
