In honor of the 60th Anniversary of the local Tennessee Valley Chapter (TVC) of the Special Libraries Association (SLA), International SLA President Deborah Hunt recently visited Tennessee. SLA is the global organization for innovative information professionals and their strategic partners, which has the mission of promoting and strengthening its members through learning, advocacy, and networking initiatives. September 13th Ms. Hunt made several stops at local information institutions, touring facilities and visiting with staff about issues facing libraries, information and knowledge managers.
In Oak Ridge, at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) Ms. Hunt learned about the history of DOE and its predecessor agencies dating back to the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Energy Commission. From the OSTI facility in Oak Ridge, Ms. Hunt was able to see first-hand how the results of research and development sponsored by DOE are collected, preserved and disseminated to the public by OSTI. While touring the OSTI facility Ms. Hunt viewed research papers by such prolific scientists as Ernest O. Lawrence and Enrico Fermi.
At the close of her visit, Ms. Hunt thanked OSTI for their work and continued support of information professionals. She had a challenge for those information professionals at OSTI and for information professionals in general: to be proactive in their careers, to continue learning and exploring different aspects of their...Read more...
You can now have multiple access points to Science Accelerator at your fingertips. Just download the new tabbed widget and you will have access to search Science Accelerator, to the RSS feed, and to the Science Accelerator Alerts. Download via the 'Get Widget Options' link or by placing the inclusion code in the online location of your choice.
When you use the widget search feature, a federated search provides one-stop simultaneous searching of multiple networked data resources, including the newly-added resources -- DOE Data Explorer and DOE Green Energy.
DOE Data Explorer contains collections of scientific research data such as computer simulations, numeric data files, figures and plots, interactive maps, multimedia, and scientific images that have been generated in the course of DOE-sponsored research in various science disciplines. These publicly available data collections support DOE research results that are well documented in journal articles, conference literature, and technical reports that are available via the Science Accelerator.
DOE Green Energy is a portal to information about various forms of green energy, including solar, wind, bioenergy, and others. It provides access to DOE technical report literature, green energy patent information, and other green energy results from research and development conducted throughout the Department and by DOE-funded awards at universities. It contains both current research and historical research.
