One of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) News Releases for the week ending August 5, 1970 was about a successful worldwide information retrieval experiment. The AEC experiment demonstrated that a terminal in Paris could search a computer in California and display the resulting bibliographic citations on a screen in Paris. OSTI has featured the AEC experiment at its DOE R&D Accomplishments Web site. DOE R&D Accomplishments is a central forum for information about the outcomes of past DOE R&D that have had significant economic impact, have improved people's lives, or have been widely recognized as a remarkable advance in science.
