Extending the Reach and Impact of Department of Energy Research Results
Introduction

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), a unit of the Office of Science, fulfills agency-wide responsibilities to collect, preserve, and disseminate scientific and technical information (STI) emanating from DOE research and development (R&D) activities.  The OSTI mission is to advance science and sustain technological creativity by making R&D findings available and useful to DOE researchers and the public.

OSTI provides access to scientific and technical information related to DOE missions through web-based searchable databases, offering ever-expanding sources of R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the science-attentive public.  The OSTI Catalogue of Collections includes DOE science resources, as well as U.S. federal and global science information.
