Locating Technical Reports

The Ralph Brown Draughon Library at Auburn University owns a large collection of technical reports, with major holdings of reports from DOE, NASA, EPA, and their contractors. Most reports are in microfiche or microcard and are housed in the Microforms and Government Documents area on the 1st floor of the library.

To locate a technical report, begin by searching the Libraries' catalog. Reports are listed by individual title or by the report series title.

If a report is not listed in the catalog, it does not mean we do not own it. For more assistance, please contact the Reference Desk at 334-844-1737 or your subject specialist librarian.
