It’s not hard to see why Government Computer News named Science.gov Mobile one of the top 10 federal mobile apps. You can use the Android app to search scientific databases from 12 federal agencies, including NASA, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency, with data going back to 1990. The Science.gov API allows any developer to tap into those same resources.
EBSCO announced that Sweden's Stockholm University has selected the EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) which includes custom integration of the EDS API into the institution's library software platform.
