Environmental research sent to WWS.org
The United Kingdom has made its first major independent contribution of research data to WorldWideScience.org with the upload of the Environment Research Funders' Forum (ERFF) Research Database. The database holds information on some 20,000 publicly funded environmental research projects and programs that have been funded by ERFF's member organizations since 2005. While research is being continually added to the ERFF's collections, through the federated search function anyone using WorldWideScience.org will be able to access the most up-to-date information from the UK's largest public sector funders of environmental science, according to the British Library press release Global science community shares wealth of knowledge. The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom, and a founding partner in the WorldWideScience Alliance.
