Science Information Searching

The federal government’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information has created three search engines to assist the science researcher in locating timely information.

  • SCIENCE accelerator provides searching for the 12 OSTI databases as well as DOE data.
  • Science.gov searches 42 databases and over 2,000 selected web sites from 18 scientific and technical organizations from 14 federal agencies.
  • The World Wide Science Organization provides a search on 76 databases from 65 countries and international organizations.

For help searching these databases, contact the Documents Department in the library at 5410 or Janice Marotta at jmarotta@ashland.edu.
