  • Good afternoon and thank you for that introduction. Thank you to KISTI for hosting this conference and to both KISTI and ICSTI for organizing it. I will begin my talk by explaining what is WorldWideScience. WorldWideScience begins with the observation that many countries publish scientific and technical information on the web. We call the sites where this information is posted a “national science portal.” National portals can take a variety of forms, from a collection of conventional web pages, to a single database on the web, to multiple unconnected databases, to a federation of many such databases so that users can search multiple databases with a single query. Of course, I was particularly familiar with the national science portal of the United States, Science.gov, which is hosted on behalf of the United States Science.gov Alliance by my Office of Scientific and Technical information. Science.gov A couple years ago, it occurred to me that researchers and science attentive citizens would greatly benefit if all the national science portals could be searched via a single query. Eventually, the tool that allowed single query searching of multiple national portals came to be called WorldWideScience. I will begin by recapping the short history of WorldWideScience.org.
