Slide 2: Why Science.gov?

Why Science.gov? Link to larger image.

The majority (>84%1) of the public uses large search engines rather than seek out individual online databases, thus a "Google-like" easy search with relevant results was desired.

*Seekers include researchers, entrepreneurs, students, educators, policymakers, program managers, or the science-aware citizen with an interest in science and technology
