Technical Reports and Archive Image Library (TRAIL): Access More Than 20,000 "At-Risk" U.S. Gov. Federal Technical Reports

From a Center for Research Libraries (CRL)  Announcement:

The Technical Reports and Archive Image Library (TRAIL) has digitized over 20,000 U.S. federal technical reports, including documents produced by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), which was responsible for the peacetime use of atomic science and technology from 1946 until 1974. Much of this information is extremely valuable today in light of the recent nuclear disaster in Japan


The TRAIL project aims to continue digitizing at-risk federal technical reports and make them openly accessible to researchers. In order to move ahead with this important work, TRAIL seeks interested institutions to join the project.
