Science.gov Adds Video Content, Releases New Search Features, and Launches Spanish Language Version

What’s New at Science.gov?

From the Science.gov Team:

For the first time, R&D video from the DOE ScienceCinema is available as well as from MedlinePLUS, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Images from the Library of Congress have been added to the image search which is now integrated under a new multimedia tab on the results page. Search enhancements include visual representations of topical information in an easy-to-use touch and dial format.

In addition, a Spanish version of the site has been launched. Ciencia.Science.gov, http://ciencia.science.gov, provides the same breadth and depth in scientific search as does Science.gov, covering over 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information. This includes free access to research and development results from 17 organizations within 13 federal science agencies, and more than 55 scientific databases and 2,100 selected scientific websites.

Integrating Microsoft’s Translator, Spanish-language queries to Science.gov initiate searches of U.S. databases and websites with results appearing in Spanish.
