The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), a unit of the Office of Science, fulfills agency-wide responsibilities to collect, preserve, and disseminate both unclassified and classified scientific and technical information (STI) emanating from DOE-funded research and development (R&D) activities at DOE national laboratories and facilities and at universities and other institutions nationwide. OSTI provides access to DOE STI through a suite of web-based, searchable discovery tools and through other commonly used search engines, offering ever-expanding sources of R&D information to DOE, the research community, and the science-attentive public.

For over 25 years we have been tracking the growth and developments in astronomy in this dictionary. For this new edition, the fifth in the book's life, we have completely reviewed and updated all the existing entries, from A0620-00 to XUV astronomy, and have added around 200 entries to reflect recent advances in astronomy and related fields. The book will provide a valuable resource both to those studying astronomy at school or university and to the many enthusiastic amateur astronomers.
Ebscohost Web is a great database for those just beginning their lower-level research in astronomy. If you use the right filters, along with the proper keywords, then your results should reflect not only the subject your researching, but a reading-level that doesn't require a PhD.
