The AZoM (A to Z of Materials) website contains a large
collection of information based on the Internet. Information is
located in a directory of information (Materials, Applications,
Jobs, etc.); a searchable database of websites of materials
research organizations, suppliers, and publications; and, a
searchable database of materials data (from NIST). There is also
a news briefs section.
Collection of links to websites with materials science and
Materials Digital Library
