Energy sites post science, hazmat data

The Energy Department is casting its Web in all directions and last month put up two new sites.


The Office of Scientific and Technical Information began offering access to unprinted information on physics, biology, environmental sciences and other research areas via its PrePrint Network, at www.osti.gov/preprint.

Through a single query, researchers can search 250 sites that house more than 215,000 documents in more than 20 databases, officials said. Universities, government laboratories, scientific societies, research organizations and individuals provide the information.

The department also began providing access to its Central Internet Database, at cid.em.doe.gov. The database holds data on radioactive waste, hazardous materials and facilities throughout the agency.

The CID site allows 'anyone with access to the Internet to more easily view information from the department's programs that generate and manage hazardous and radioactive waste,' said Carolyn Huntoon, assistant secretary for environmental management.
