Technical Reports - United States

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

The EPA was created in 1970 from other agencies to consolidate the U.S. effort to fight air, land and water pollution. Most of what GIR owns is indexed in VIRGO. However many EPA reports are not distributed to UVA because the reports are sponsored by contactors outside the government. See the following indexing and full-text resources: 
  • Government Reports Annual Index (print) 1977-1994. Call number C 51.9/4:. Located in Government Information Resources. This index is the precursor to the NTIS database.

  • NTIS Database UVA only 1964-current
    (Scroll down page to access NTIS)
