The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific & Technical Information (OSTI) provides access to scientific and technical information using web-based searchable databases, offering ever-expanding sources of R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the science-attentive public. The databases offer search simplicity as well as advanced search capabilities such as customized alerts, results displayed in relevance rank, and downloadable search results for a broad array of scientific information related to DOE missions.
In general, the databases offer the customer bibliographic records with abstracts and full details of the source document which can be located by using the CERN Library catalogue or obtained via our interlibrary loan service.
