NTIS / DARTS

Hello everyone!

I come bearing access to a new database: NTIS / DARTS, which is a collection of downloadable government documents. It is on the A - Z list of databases.

This database is ONLY available in Gleeson Library, and it requires a special log-in. If someone asks to use the database, log them in yourselves. DO NOT GIVE OUT THE PASSWORD.

The password is located in the Reference Department binder above the key cabinet. It's in the section "Passwords."

About NTIS / DARTS:

This database is a collaboration between NTIS and the Government Printing Office (GPO) and was designed specifically for depository libraries. The DARTS database from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) provides access to approximately 240,000 full text documents dating from 1964 to 2000. The database includes documents from the Department of Energy (DOE), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), and NTIS. The documents in the NTIS collection are the products of many different Federal agencies and include both agency and contract studies. Some of the major subject areas covered in this database are as follows: physics, environmental pollution and control, nuclear science and technology, medicine and biology, energy, chemistry, materials science, natural resources and earth sciences, computers and information theory.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
