Sharing simulator case scenarios among educators will greatly reduce the cost and effort involved in bringing simulation to our students. A library of 72 cases was posted to the internet to freely share. The cases in the library consist of text files utilizing a simple open-source format. In the first four months after posting, cases were downloaded over 18,000 times. In addition, the library encouraged the development of 23 new cases by 16 new contributors. This experience indicates a strong interest in obtaining free cases, but only modest willingness to share new scenarios among authors and institutions.
