The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS), a global non-profit membership organisation serving the information community, has announced that the American Mathematical Society's Mathematical Reviews and the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) National Transportation Library have joined NFAIS as new members.
The AMS, long time publisher of Mathematical Reviews and its online companion, MathSciNet®, rejoins NFAIS as a member after being one of the federation's charter members in 1958.
AMS Mathematical Reviews, founded in 1940, comprises over 3 million items in its MathSciNet database. Mathematical Reviews and MathSciNet add approximately 120,000 new items each year, covering over 1,800 journals and with links to more than 1.7 million original articles. In addition, Mathematical Reviews indexes roughly 765,000 authors and currently has more than 15,000 active reviewers. The AMS, founded in 1888, promotes mathematical research and scholarship and serves the US and global community through publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs. The AMS has roughly 30,000 individual and 580 institutional members in the US and around the world.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) National Transportation Library (NTL) maintains and facilitates access to information necessary for transportation decision-making in government. The NTL also coordinates with public and private transportation libraries and information providers to improve information sharing among the transportation community. The NTL, created in 1998 and administered by the DOT's Bureau of Transportation Statistics, is a repository of DOT transportation information, and serves as a portal for transportation data and library services to DOT employees.
The NTL joins NFAIS's current membership of U.S. national libraries and related bureaus: the National Agricultural Library (U.S. Department of Agriculture), the National Library of Medicine (National Institutes of Health), the National Technical Information Service (U.S. Department of Commerce), National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) and the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (U.S. Department of Energy).
