SCIENCE.PH

 

The science.ph project is testament to the commitment of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in promoting science and technology awareness in the Philippines. It is both a search engine and a free, comprehensive information website that contains "everything science" in the Philippines—hence the tagline “Science for every Juan.”

 

It was developed with an eye toward researchers, teachers, students, communicators, or any individual wishing to know about the latest breakthroughs and developments in the Philippine science scene. However, what makes this unique from other search engines is the availability of "hidden web" information, or information untouched by search engines since it resides in a database, accessible only through content partnerships.

DOST UNION CATALOG

This contains the union catalog of the DOST ScINET-PHIL, a consortium of all the 21 libraries and information centers under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) including its 15 regional offices. The main objective of the catalog is to facilitate the research work both for professionals and students as well. The union catalog would save a lot of time and money for our library users. Any prospective library user need not go from one library to another in search of information materials. What he has to do is access the union catalog and check whether the material he needs is available or not, and if so in which library or information center.

The SciNet Integrated Libary Management System (SILMS) was customized from several existing ILMS to suit our requirements. Said system can handle both bibliographic and full-text contents of library and information materials including multimedia.

PREGINET

The Philippine Research , Education and Government Information Network (PREGINET) is the country’s only Research and Education Network (REN) that interconnects academic, research, and government institutions, and has links to international RENs such as the Asia-Pacific Advanced Network (APAN), the Asian Internet Interconnection Initiatives (AI3), and the Trans-Eurasia Information Network 3 (TEIN3).

Prior to PREGINET, no identifiable contiguous and wide coverage REN exists in the Philippines. The academic, government, and research institutions are connected through commercial Internet Service Providers (ISPs) for the access of online information and references for their research and education activities. With this set-up, links to the Internet became congested and networks became vulnerable to line outages. To address some of the shortcomings of the situation and at the same time, focus on the requirements for a national research and education network as a strategy to develop the vision of a networked Philippines, PREGINET was conceptualized.

Compared with commercial ISPs, PREGINET provides value to academic, government, and research institutions in four (4) primary areas:

  1. direct connectivity to international RENs;
  2. enhanced communication through its value-added services which include videoconferencing, video streaming, and Voice over IP (VoIP);
  3. access to local and foreign content and applications via conduct of Research and Development (R&D);  and
  4. facilitating formation of user-communities in areas of agriculture, bioinformatics, disaster mitigation, distance education, network technologies, telemedicine, among others.

Upon joining PREGINET, partners are provided the platform to pursue collaborative research and initiatives with leading universities and research institutions abroad.
