Share and borrow

This page has been set up as a place where those who are involved in teaching mineralogy can share innovations they have found/created and use those shared by others. Such sharing is particularly relevant at the present time as we head into an uncertain period of “remote/virtual” teaching.

To share, enter a comment in the box below  with a link to your offering. New software will be added to the list.

Feel free to use any of the tools listed below. Note that: (1) not all of the tools are necessarily free of charge; (2) the Society takes no responsibility for testing these tools.
