"The Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues is a web-based collection of annotated references to resources that offer a broad, balanced perspective on current and historical nuclear issues. The references trace the development of nuclear science, the Manhattan Project, which produced the first atomic bombs, the Cold War arms race, and the post-Cold War world of proliferation and terrorism, as well as nuclear power. The materials referenced include books, articles, videos, and websites. Each annotation is vetted to assure accuracy and indexed to facilitate access...The scope of its references is also broader than current print bibliographies, which tend to focus on a single issue or discipline."
