Much of Science is Non-Googleable: An Emerging Solution National Science Foundation Washington, DC August 14, 2007 Science Foundation Walter Warnick Director, Office of Scientific and Technical Information U. S. Department of Energy

Most useful information is available via familiar search engines such as Google and Yahoo! True or False?

Google : v., to search for information through Google Googleable : adj., information found by Googling Non-Googleable : adj., information that cannot be found by Googling

Larry Page, speaking to scientists, AAAS 2007 "Virtually all economic growth (in the world) was due to technological progress. I think as a society we're not really paying attention to that.” He called on the scientists to make more of their research available digitally. “We have to unlock the wealth of scientific knowledge and get it to everyone.”

To advance science and sustain technological creativity by making R&D findings available to Department of Energy researchers and the American public OSTI Mission Researchers Public Public Researchers Information fuels discovery Superior access to quality information speeds discovery

Google “crawls” the surface Web, but scientific databases are largely found in the deep Web Scientific databases stump Google Surface Web Systems that crawl the Web do not typically reach below the surface

Google moves ahead with plan to open up federal Web sites Google is making strides on an initiative to make information stored on public government Web sites more accessible to people looking for it, but challenges remain, officials with the search engine company said Wednesday. Three federal organizations recently agreed to structure their sites to make them accessible for nearly all Internet searches, the officials said. Information on the Plain Language Web site aimed at eliminating jargon in government communications, and on sites by the Energy Department's Office of Scientific and Technical Information and the Education Department's National Center for Education Statistics, has been opened up to the three most popular search engines: Google, Yahoo and MSN. Google works to solve the problem, but there’s a better way …

Federated search drills down to the deep Web where scientific databases reside. Unlike the Google solution, it places no burden on the database owners. We need systems that probe the deep Web Deep Web databases Surface Web

Basic Search Search term: “electric vehicles” AND batteries

Results by source

Advanced Search Search term: “avian influenza” OR “bird flu”

Neither crawling nor federated search is a panacea

Federated searching does things crawling cannot do, and vise versa. They are complementary technologies

Federated searching has advanced rapidly and should continue to advance

In January 2007, Dr. Raymond Orbach, U.S. Department of Energy Under Secretary for Science, and Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive of the British Library, signed a Statement of Intent to partner in the development of a searchable global science gateway

WorldWideScience.org pulls together often isolated islands of information into one easily searchable gateway In short

Next Steps for WorldWideScience.org Establish governance structure Increase number of national sources Add non-English sources Develop translations capabilities Integrate limited-access sources The International Council for Scientific and Technical Information (ICSTI) has indicated preliminarily that it will serve as an umbrella for governance.

Establish governance structure

Increase number of national sources

Add non-English sources

Develop translations capabilities

Integrate limited-access sources
