Technical Reports Holdings by MIT Library

Barker Engineering Library:

Most technical reports in Barker are on microfiche in drawers located on the 5th floor. They include:

  • David Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center Reports (DTMB, DTNSRDC, DTRC)
    • Digital Archive:
    • Paper copies of the reports in the digital archive: Library Storage Annex at call number: V393.R46
    • If not in the digital archive, check the microfiche copies: Microfiche area, first cabinet nearest the door, 4th drawer down.
  • Computer Science (CMU-CS) and Robotics Institute (CMU-RI-TR) reports from Carnegie Mellon University  Microfiche area, first cabinet nearest the door, 4th drawer down.
  • ComputerScience (STAN-CS) reports from Stanford University Microfiche area, first cabinet nearest the door, 4th drawer down.
  • Earthquake Engineering Research Center (EERC) reports from the University of California, Berkeley  Microfiche area, first cabinet nearest the door, 4th drawer down.
  • Computer Science (UILCDCS-R) and College of Engineering (UILU-ENG) reports from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign  Microfiche area, first cabinet nearest the door, 4th drawer down.
  • U.S. Government depository microfiche are in the Microfiche Area arranged by Superintendent of Documents number in the first drawers on the left.

Science Library:

  • The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) produces technical reports. For their NUREG series, try here for online reports:
  • MIT Libraries have several NUREGS listed in Barton. First try searching by the author and title. MOST NUREGS, however, are listed according to their series designation. Use the < Title Begins with> search and type in the series number, such as NUREG/BR, or NUREG/CR. Look at the detailed holdings to see if MIT owns the one you want.
  • Request an item you see listed from the Library Storage Annex using this form: Include all the information, including call number.
  • The Libraries also own partial set of dockets (reports on nuclear power plants); docket lists and FIND Indexes (reactors by name and number).

At the Annex:

In addition to paper and fiche reports, the Annex has AD reports from the 1940s-1960s on reels of microfilm. These books guide you to these reports: Correlation Index (1953); 1958; August 1963; and other supplements from 1963 and 1964. Note: the Correlation Index (1953) also lists many PB numbers for reports from the MIT Radiation Lab.
