Science.gov Enhancements

by Valerie Allen on Thu, 28 Jan, 2010

Science.gov has an updated look this week to make room for enhancements.   The enhancements will both faciliate use and awareness of Science.gov and highlight findings and activities of the participating agencies.

Want to share or save a permanent link on Science.gov via social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook? There is now a sharing and bookmarking toolbar on the main Science.gov page as well as on each subject page . 

Science in the News is a new feature providing current news from many of the participating Science.gov agencies. Aggregated headlines from agency RSS feeds scroll on the Science.gov page, allowing users to keep up with agency news by consulting just one location.   The most current headlines are on the main Science.gov page while headlines from the past several days are continued on a separate page.  Headlines are linked to the full agency information. 

Current agencies providing RSS feeds to the aggregated feed are:  

Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Department of Education, Federal Resources for Educational  Excellence 

Department of Energy 

Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Department of Health and Human Services, NLM MedlinePlus 

Department of Interior, U.S. Geological Survey

Department of Transportation 

Environmental Protection Agency 

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

National Science Foundation

More Science.gov agency RSS feeds will be integrated soon, so keep watching!
