Abstract: The issues associated with nuclear energy and security encompass a broad range of topics from diverse disciplines. This diversity often makes it difficult to locate reliable sources of information on these important topics. The Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues provides a searchable collection of vetted annotations of references on a wide range of nuclear topics. Recently, the Alsos library joined Nuclear Pathways, a composite website encompassing nuclear issues, which currently integrates four high quality websites, each with its own specialty and mission. All are members of the National Science Digital Library, a comprehensive scientific resource in the USA. The Nuclear Pathways websites bring together many aspects of crucial issues of our time for the people who need the information the most – policy makers, scientists, educators, students and ordinary citizens.

Keywords: nuclear bibliography; digital library; nuclear energy; nuclear issues; nuclear security; nuclear power; nuclear information; nuclear knowledge management; Nuclear Pathways websites; internet.
