Finding Technical Reports at UC Berkeley

Bookmark and Share

Preview the new Library website.

The Engineering Library has more than 730,000 uncataloged technical reports dating back to the 1940s. Reports are in three formats: paper, microfiche and microcards; the collection is located on the lower level of the Engineering Library (southeast corner).

The technical report number is the most important piece of information in finding a technical report. First, search the OskiCat to see if there is a record with the report number. If not, search the National Technical Reports Library (NTRL), the government technical report database.

Use Technical Report Databases to find reports on a topic and bring the report numbers to the Engineering Library to locate them.

Full-text reports are available directly from many government agencies. Use the agencies' databases links from Technical Report Databases to find them.

The Engineering Library offers a free technical report ordering service to UCB faculty, staff, and students for government reports that are not owned here. For assistance, ask at the Reference Desk.
