The Nuclear Plant Information Books is a "...compilation of
information on all 109 commercial nuclear power plants in the United States.
This database includes information on general plant design, plant system
characteristics, single-line system diagrams, and emergency response
At the top of the index's main page are links to: (1) a disclaimer by the
site's creators; (2) a search engine (via icon); (3) the feedback area; and
(4) the book index link. The search engine features a keyword field, where
users can specify the number of matching search results. The book index is
alphabetized according to state; users should browse through listings,
select a reactor site of interest to view its complete records.
A full-color map of the United States also activates the site's search
engine. Users should select a state or reactor site of interest to begin
the search. Users should refer to the site for complete details on the
contents of an individual reactor's records. Listed here are the major
topics featured within a given record: (1) image of reactor (in color); (2)
image of reactor and its adjoining grounds (black and white image); (3)
facility statistics; (4) emergency response information; (5) plant
description summary; (6) simplified plant system diagrams; and (7) detailed
plant system data. Within the record's table of contents, all titles of
topics are direct links to their respective contents.

The CFADC Bibliography is a "...categorized bibliography of atomic and
molecular collision references relevant to fusion energy research and
development." Presently, the bibliography contains entries dating from
1978, numbering 26,000 total citations. in the near future, archives from
c. 1950 to 1977 will be added to the site.
Within the site's main page are four major links. The first, "categories of
the bibliography," offers major categories and subcategories. Major topics
of the bibliography include: (1) heavy particle--heavy particle
interactions; (2) interactions of atomic particles with fields; (3) particle
penetration in macroscopic matter (electrons, ions, and neutrals); (4)
particle interactions with solids; (5) electron-particle interactions; (6)
photon collisions with electrons and heavy particles; (7) data compilations;
(8) reviews and books; and (9) bibliographies. Selecting a category reveals
its subcategory listings. Selecting a subcategory then reveals a search
with fields. Results are a listing of bibliography entries. The
"search-author" link produces a query page with fields, conducting its
search based on an author's name. "Search-category" conducts a search based
on a reaction category; this area also produces a query page with fields.
"Journals" accesses a list of journals, published in the last decade, which
are cited within the database; all titles are abbreviated.
Bibliography entries within the site feature: (1) record number; (2)
experiment or theory; (3) energy range; (4) reactants; (5) search items
(from specified query fields); (6) journal title; (7) reference numbers and
publication year; (8) author(s); and (9) title of article. At the bottom
of the site's main page is a link to the CFADC homepage on the WWW.
