National Technical Reports Library

To further enhance accessibility to the NTIS collection,


NTIS will be launching the National Technical Reports Library (NTRL) during early Spring 2009.

The NTRL will provide access to:

Bibliographic records of more than 2,000,000 technical reports
Downloadable full text of 500,000 of these reports in Portable Document Format


The NTRL operates on a subscription-based system interface that allows users to do queries on the large NTIS bibliographic database. The intent is to broadly expand and improve access to millions of bibliographic records (pre-1960 to present) and 500k full-text documents in Portable Document Format that are directly linked to the bibliographic database.

If interested in learning more about the NTRL in greater detail, please write to
