This database provides bibliographic access to approximately 240,000 technical reports published between 1964 and 2000 by the National Technical Information Service (NTIS).  Reports for which electronic access is available will be available for free to library patrons while other reports will be available for purchase from the NTIS in print, microfiche, or CD/DVD format.

Because the NTIS Publications database is being made available only to libraries participating in the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) and because the Ralph Brown Draughon Library is a depository library, access to the database is restricted to Auburn University students, faculty, and staff.  Due to publisher restrictions, access to the database requires the assistance of a librarian using a password to log in.  See this link for more information.
