Free Online Publications: I - R
An Exploratorium Learning Studio Resource Guide for Educators.

The purpose of this set of pages is to provide some limited access to free online publications mainly in the area of science. These items are not created or maintained by the Exploratorium, they are located in various parts of the Internet. If you spot a problematic link please let us know.

The items in this list are only temporarily here.

Normally we would be adding these directly to our catalog rather than listing them on a web page.We are locating these materials far faster than we can catalog them.
As we catalog these items in the Learning Studio Online Catalog they will be removed from this list.

Tip: When we add such materials to the our catalog we include the phrase "online resource" in square brackets in the title. Do a title keyword search in the Learning Studio Online Catalog for online resource and a full list of what we have processed to date will result.

Some of these documents are PDF files and to view them you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is free and available at:
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readermain.html

We are not including web pages, for those see the appropriate web information source directory.
