OSTI now offers librarians and others, free of charge, the opportunity to download records of DOE research and development (R&D) information in MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging) format. Records are available for the full-text reports contained in the Information Bridge. By using OSTI's MARC records download librarians can easily expand access to a variety of scientific research straight from their online library catalogs.
OSTI MARC Records are derived from existing Information Bridge records. There are currently over 170,000 records in the Information Bridge. Options for downloading records include subject category, year and OSTI ID number.
Information Bridge provides free public access to full-text documents and bibliographic citations of DOE research report literature. Documents are primarily from 1991 forward and were produced by DOE, the DOE contractor community, and/or DOE grantees. Legacy documents - including U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) documents dating back to the 1940s - and their MARC Records, are added as they become available.
