Created in 1977, the Department of Energy is involved in contracted research in all areas under its domain: nuclear and solar power, energy conservation, biomass and synthetic fuels and more.
Library holdings in microfiche
The library owns a collection of over 200,000 DOE microfiche, filed under the call numbers ER 1.11:, E 1.28 and E 1.99. Some of these reports are indexed in VIRGO, but most are not individually indexed in VIRGO. Fiche location: 3EAST Reading Room.
NOTE: If you have a report number that looks like ERDA/JPL/954465 or CONF/76-82 or ALO/3727-77/1 it might have been cataloged under any of the Energy Department technical report stems (ER 1.11:, E 1.28, E 1.99:) and it might be in either paper or microfiche. Best Bet - look all three (six - paper and fiche) places, regardless of what VIRGO says.
