The 75th anniversary of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) arrives at a time of unparalleled scientific progress and discovery. From its early days in paper and microfiche to the current digital delivery of scientific research data, software code, and scholarly literature, OSTI has found innovative ways to bring DOE-funded research and development (R&D) results to the public since 1947. OSTI continually pursues new ways to make scientific and technical information (STI) more discoverable, easily accessible, and more complete than ever before.

As part of this year of celebration, OSTI has aimed to provide articles detailing interesting events in DOE OSTI history, advances in our search tools and services, and our plans for the next 75 years. Titles and links can be found below.

OSTI will host a livestream celebration event on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 at 10:00 am EST. The link to the livestream will be posted here. Stay tuned.
