Search boxes appear on many top level pages. The heading above the
search box indicates the scope of the search that will be conducted.
Some search boxes will search only certain pages of the NSF site.
For example, the search box on the biology
overview page will only search biology pages for the terms submitted.
To search the entire NSF web site, use the search box on the home
page or go to the search page by clicking on the search option in
the menubar at the top or toolbar at the bottom of most pages.
Online Document System
Document System includes all NSF documents (numbered publications)
available in electronic formats (such as HTML, ASCII, and PDF).
Documents can be searched for by document type, document number,
text search, or date.
Custom News Service
NSF offers subscriptions to our publications and other documents
through the Custom News Service.
The Custom News Service is an email- and web-based alert service
which notifies anyone with an interest in NSF news and documents
when new publications are released. It is a custom service
that lets you select the types of publications you want to know
about. The Custom News Service alerts you to new documents on the
NSF web site and provides a link to each document's location.
Users who prefer a text-only version of the NSF web site can generate
one automatically using Betsie, the BBC Education Text to Speech
Internet Enhancer. Betsie linearizes tables, translates ALT values,
Betsie to turn links to PDF files into links that translate the
PDF files into HTML files using the Adobe Document Server. You can
access the Betsie-generated version of our site at http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/access/parser.pl/www.nsf.gov
or through a link at the top of the NSF home page available to screen
Many pages on the NSF web site provide a link in the bottom right
