Added 6/19/07 - Global Research Gateway

" opens public access
to more than 200 million pages of international research information

"The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the British Library, along with eight other participating countries (see database list), has opened an online global gateway ( science information from 15 portals. The gateway gives citizens, researchers and anyone interested in science the capability to search science portals not easily accessible through popular search technology such as that deployed by Google, Yahoo! and many other commercial search engines.

Using federated searching, saves time by providing one entry point and one query for searching multiple science portals. In time this gateway will tap into less well-known sources of valuable science.

Search!, the U.S. government's portal to federal agency science databases, is included as well as research information in English from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan and the Netherlands. The intent is for it to become a world-class Web facility that allows anyone to easily find the research of any nation in any language.
