NTIS Document Library Goes OA

The National Technical Reports Library (NTRL), a service of the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), is providing free public access to its searchable online database of about 3 million federal science and technology reports. The full texts of 800,000 documents are now available to download as PDF files for free; the rest of the NTRL’s reports are still on microfiche. They can be accessed as PDFs once scanned or in print for a fee. Each time one of these documents is digitized, however, NTRL will add the full-text PDF to its open repository.

“Our mission is to collect and broadly disseminate federal science and technology information using a self-supporting business model,” says Bruce Borzino, NTIS’s director. “However, we also recognize that a number of the documents previously offered for a fee through our website were available for free from other sources. … We have continually updated our pricing and business models in response to changing times and we’ll continue to do so.”
