OSTI (the US Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information) recently joined YouTube and released a couple of short videos pertaining to the Deep Web. Disclosure: I consult for OSTI.

Deep Web Video

To make the web work better for science, OSTI has developed state-of-the-art technologies and services including a deep web search capability. The deep web includes content in searchable databases available to web users but not accessible by popular search engines, such as Google. This video provides an introduction to the deep web search engine.


WorldWideScience.org is a global science gateway—accelerating scientific discovery and progress through a multilateral partnership to enable federated searching of national and international scientific databases and portals.

The federated search technology that powers WorldWideScience.org and a number of other OSTI applications was developed by this blog’s sponsor, Deep Web Technologies.

Some of you may remember an earlier OSTI video I wrote about: Searching the Deep Web.
