Technical reports (NASA, DOE, etc.)

How to find and obtain technical reports, particularly those held by the Cornell libraries

Cornell University Technical Reports

A number of units of Cornell University--particularly those associated with the College of Engineering--produce technical reports or did so in the past. Some of these reports are online, some are in print, and some are not available at all at present.

Below are some sources of tech reports from Cornell:

CALSPAN/Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory

From 1946 until 1972, Cornell operated the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory in Buffalo, New York, after which time operations were spun off into the independent CALSPAN corporation, which was later acquired--but later again spun off--by General Dynamics.

The Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory produced a large number of technical reports, some--though not all of which--are held by Cornell University Library. Some are in print, some are online, some are in microfiche format.

Finding Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory/CALSPAN technical reports:

1. Check our online catalog by title and author. We might have it.
2. Then check NTIS and the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS). It may be directly downloadable or else available for purchase (if you would like CUL to purchase a specific technical report from NTIS or NTRS, contact us.
3. Check Worldcat to see if it is available at another library and, if so, request it via interlibrary loan or Borrow Direct.
