New Physical Science Information Gateway on the Net

A new Internet-based resource for those interested in finding out more about the physical sciences (astronomy, chemistry, earth sciences, history of science, materials science, and physics) has been launched by universities in the U.K. PSIgate (http://www.psigate.ac.uk), a custom-designed gateway to scientific information, is a free service that provides access to a searchable catalog of high-quality resources. PSIgate is part of the Resource Discovery Network (RDN; http://www.rdn.uk), a service dedicated to providing effective access to Internet resources for the learning, teaching, and research communities. The development of PSIgate is being led by the University of Manchester (http://www.man.ac.uk) on behalf of the Consortium of Academic Libraries in Manchester (CALIM; http://www.calim.ac.uk), and is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC; http://www.jisc.ac.uk) of the U.K. higher education funding councils.

Developed initially with higher education staff and students in mind, the new service is also expected to be useful to industrialists, K-12 school students, and members of the general public. PSIgate will continue to develop to include access to a wider range of products and services, cross-searching and linking to other catalogs and databases, current awareness, and newsfeeds.

Other services that are part of RDN include BIOME (http://biome.ac.uk), a guide to health and life sciences resources; EEVL (http://www.eevl.ac.uk), a guide to engineering, mathematics, and computing information; Humbul Humanities Hub (http://www.humbul.ac.uk); and SOSIG (http://www.sosig.ac.uk), the Social Science Information Gateway.
