Description

Objective: This poster describes the methods by which InterNano, the information service and virtual home of the National Nanomanufacturing Network1 (NNN), supports the information needs of the nanomanufacturing cohort: multi‐institutional and organizational stakeholders across diverse domains.

Methods: InterNano2 strives to support the nanomanufacturing research and development community through collection, organization, and dissemination of information on the nanomanufacturing domain. Services include a monthly newsletter and weekly mailer distributed to 4,500 subscribers, a directory of 600 organizations and experts, a nanomanufacturing process database, expert reviews of topical peerreviewed articles, “highlight” articles that contextualize nanomanufacturing trends and news, an eprints research repository, and an events calendar, among other unique features and content. All content is tagged with terms from an original interactive nanomanufacturing taxonomy.

Results: Since the internano.org launch in 2008, the NNN core team has seen an increase of user buy‐in and participation; users create and self‐manage directory entries, submit press releases for dissemination, and self‐subscribe to the newsletter. InterNano site traffic continues to increase as the NNN develops more content.

Conclusions: The NNN team is currently refining and developing its services to better serve the diverse nanomanufacturing community, with plans underway to build a dashboard interface to better direct users to relevant information and to develop content across the board with a team of new contributing editors.
