New Search Area for the NCES WebSite

Unveiled on July 6, this new area simplifies searches at the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) Website. The page features a site-wide keyword search engine and four targeted search tools. The first of these, the Electronic Catalog, helps users find NCES publications and data products, with several search methods, and related information, including a listing of the most popular NCES reports. The Global Education Locator features four keyword search engines: On-Line, National Public School/ District Locator, Public Library Locator, and Private School Locator. The third tool, NCES Fast Facts, offers a collection of in-depth answers to selected education questions, browseable by a subject list, as well a daily "Did You Know" fact and searchable archives of the "Inside the Stats" feature, both of which link to the source documentation. Finally, the NCES Staff Directory allows users to "locate all NCES staff members alphabetically or select one of several options to search staff via their survey/ program area, topic of expertise, or service area."
