UC Berkeley, in conjunction with four other UC campuses, is now providing access to the National Technical Reports Library (NTRL). NTRL is a searchable index of over 2 million reports from the National Technical Information Service, which archives technical reports from U.S. government agencies such as the Departments of Defense, Energy, Transportation, Health and Human Services, and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others. Easy access to full text (in PDF) is available for over 500,000 reports. NTRL is searchable by keyword or by report number.
NTRL will replace Berkeley’s current subscription to the NTIS database through CSA. Other technical reports databases can also be found through the Engineering Library’s guide to technical reports.
