Science.gov Adds NSDL to Collection

The nation's "go to" Web portal for government science information recently added the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) to its collection. This means that users can search all the science databases and more than 1,800 science Web sites at Science.gov, plus the 1.1 million records of science, technology, engineering and mathematics education resources at NSDL, with just one click.

This one-stop search is free of charge, free of ads, and returns only reliable science information.

"I think teachers and students are going to be especially pleased," said Eleanor Frierson, Science.gov Alliance co-chair and deputy director of the National Agricultural Library. "Science.gov already is widely used by the education sector; the NSDL addition expands and enhances our science education emphasis."
