In an effort to facilitate the identification and use of highly‐relevant publications and resources relating to the social and economic implications of information, computation, and communication technologies, the National Science Foundation (NSF) recently funded a pilot project to create a Web‐based bibliographic database of significant materials. Within the framework of this database, users are able to browse citations to relevant topics or search for specific aspects. The nature of the selected resources, their description, and associated methods for searching, viewing, saving, and exporting are outlined. The features and functionalities of the host Web‐based database management software are also described.
