Energy Department’s OSTI archives scientific data on the Web

"The Energy Department's Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) has set up a partnership with Internet Archive to provide uninterrupted access to more than a million online research papers from OSTI’s E-print Network.

The goal of the nonprofit Internet Archive is to build an Internet library that will offer permanent access for researchers, historians and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format. Internet Archive is also home to the Wayback Machine, a feature that shows what a given Web site looked like at different moments in its history.

OSTI worked with the Internet Archive’s archiving service, Archive-It, a Web application that helps harvest, manage, search and preserve collections of archived Web pages.

The OSTI collection is permanently archived at, where it can be viewed for free by the public. The E-print Network is the largest federal collection that has been preserved through Archive-It."
