Science.gov is a search system with access to over 50 databases and over 2100 selected websites, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information, including research and development results. All databases are queried simultaneously (federated search).
In late 2010, Science.gov added an image searching database. The first three databases featured in this search module are: the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Library of Images from the Environment (LIFE), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA ) Image eXchange (NIX), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Photo Library.
