Welcome to the homepage of the LIFT kit: Library of Inclusive Field Technology

The Library of Inclusive Field Technology mission is to provide the tools and expertise to improve the accessibility and inclusion in university field trips and field research in the natural sciences through the use of technology aids. This project is supported by the National Science Foundation and donor support. We are currently in the early stages of purchasing, test-running equipment, and setting up the website. In the meantime, please contact Anita Marshall, University of Florida at anita.marshall [at] ufl.edu for more information, and check out the examples below of the tools in the kit being used in field learning activities.
