NEW BOOK, WEB SITE CAN HELP MEDIA FEATURE NIST AT 100.
Founded on March 3, 1901, as the National Bureau of Standards, NIST was the Federal Government's first physical science research laboratory and has served throughout the century as a "behind-the-scenes" specialist for industry, science, government and the public. Its research, measurement tools and technical services are integrated deeply into many of the systems and operations that, collectively, drive the economy--manufacturing cells, satellite systems, communication and transportation networks, laboratories, factories, hospitals and businesses.
Reporters and editors are encouraged to help NIST celebrate its centennial year by featuring the agency and first century of service to America in articles, online stories and broadcast reports. All of the historical information needed is now available in NIST at 100: Foundations for Progress, an extensive, illustrated book. Single printed copies may be requested by fax (301-926-1630) or e-mail (email@example.com).
A full-color World Wide Web site, www.100.nist.gov, complements the printed text and provides links to additional material.
Non-media requests for single copies of NIST at 100: Foundations for Progress may be faxed to the number above or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
