Government Technical Reports Collection in Cooper Library

Cooper Library had a historical collection of technical reports - most of them disseminated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) from the mid-1970s to 1997. We no longer maintain this collection, as most reports are available electronically.

Subject access to this collection is available using two print Indexes:  Government Reports Announcements (GRA), C 51.9/3: and Energy Research Abstracts (ERA), E 1.17:. Both are shelved in the Government Documents Collection on the 3rd floor.
