Government Information: the Most Interesting Information in the World

Join Minitex and the University of Minnesota Libraries Regional Depository Library in a unique webinar series that highlights the exciting government information available to you and your patrons for free. Learn to determine the best starting points for your government information searching and be informed, my friends, through these free webinars.

This webinar will focus on SciTech Connect, a new product from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI). Utilizing a new search interface, SciTech Connect consolidated and replaces the Energy Citations Database and the Information Bridge. The Basic Search in SciTech Connect features semantic search, while the Advanced Search uses Boolean and fielded search. The webinar will highlight the differences between basic and advanced search, plus other new features of SciTech Connect.

Energy research touches all scientific disciplines. SciTech Connect has significant coverage of DOE supported research and related literature in physics, chemistry, engineering, environmental sciences, geosciences, biology and medicine, mathematics and computing, and materials.
