STAR: Sharing Tools And Resources

On March 7 from 10:00am – 3:00pm, the Scientific Library will bring together representatives for many valuable electronic projects at NCI-Frederick for a Resource Fair. Staff from labs and programs across the NCI-Frederick campus will have information tables in the Library in Building 549 throughout the day and will present short introductions for their resources in the Library’s Technology Training Lab. The purpose of this event is to connect researchers with similar interests and to alert them to tools that may benefit their work and save them time.

In an effort to bring attention to these resources created at NCI-Frederick, the Scientific Library has begun a program called STAR: Sharing Tools And Resources. This work began when the Library collaborated with the former Laboratory of Chemical Carcinogenesis to revitalize their Diazeniumdiolate Database. A webpage was created at to gather together links so that other resources created on the NCI-Frederick campus could be collected easily.

If you are interested in having your project included on the STAR page, or if the Library may assist you in implementing an electronic tool or database, please contact us at 301-846-1093 or We hope to see you at the Resource Fair.
