Science.gov, Now with Multimedia, New Search Features

Spanish Version Debuted

Science.gov now includes multimedia content, an updated interface with enhanced navigation, and a Spanish version of the site, Ciencia.Science.gov.

For the first time, R&D video from the DOE ScienceCinema is available as well as from MedlinePLUS, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Images from the Library of Congress have been added to the image search which is now integrated under a new multimedia tab on the results page. Search enhancements include visual representations of topical information in an easy-to-use touch and dial format (for more information, see the OSTI Announcement)."

Since we first launched Science.gov in 2002, we have continually improved it to make it even more useful to citizens interested in finding research and development results from across the U.S. government," said OSTI Director Walter Warnick. "Now Science.gov contains multimedia content and is accessible to the Spanish-speaking public. We are pleased with these developments and we fully intend to continue enhancing the value and utility of Science.gov." OSTI, within the DOE Office of Science, was instrumental in developing Science.gov and hosts the web portal.

The Science.gov Alliance will highlight these and other achievements in its 10th Anniversary celebration in December (more information).
