The Nanoparticle Information Library (NIL) was established in 2004 by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and its national and international partners as part of the NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Program. The NIL is a searchable database of nanoparticle properties and associated health and safety information designed to help occupational health professionals, industrial users, worker groups, and researchers organize and share information on nanomaterials. The current hosting, administration, and maintenance of the NIL web resource is being conducted by Oregon State University (OSU) in conjunction with its program to characterize nanomaterials. The information that the NIL collaborators have incorporated into the online database includes: • Nanomaterial composition; • Method of production; • Particle size, surface area, and morphology (included scanning, transmission, or other electron micrographic images); • Demonstrated or intended applications of the nanomaterials; • Availability for research or commercial applications; • Associated or relevant publications and links to health and safety information; and • Points of contact for additional details or partnering.
