The NTIS website and supporting ordering systems are undergoing a major upgrade from 8PM on September 25th through approximately October 6. During that time, much of the functionality, including subscription and product ordering, shipping, etc., will not be available. You may call NTIS at 1-800-553-6847 or (703) 605-6000 to place an order but you should expect delayed shipment. Please do NOT include credit card numbers in any email you might send NTIS.
Documents in the NTIS Technical Reports collection are the results of federally funded research. They are directly submitted to or collected by NTIS from Federal agencies for permanent accessibility to industry, academia and the public.  Before purchasing from NTIS, you may want to check for free access from (1) the issuing organization's website; (2) the U.S. Government Printing Office's Federal Digital System website http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys; (3) the federal government Internet portal USA.gov; or (4) a web search conducted using a commercial search engine such as http://www.google.com.

The Value of Science & Technology on CD

Science & Technology on CD is particularly valuable for corporate and special libraries -- especially those that need new information quickly or want a complete collection on a particular topic.

  • Digital documents are stored in PDF format that can easily be viewed from the CD using free Adobe Acrobat reader software.
  • One or more CDs containing the digital documents related to your selections from any or all 375 subject categories are sent every two weeks. On average, one CD-ROM contains up to 100 documents.
  • On the Digital Documents CD-ROM(s), you get a list of the titles and accession numbers.
  • Quarterly and annually you get a Cumulative Catalog Index CD-ROM of the digital documents as part of the subscription.
  • The Cumulative Catalog Index CD-ROM includes a powerful search engine that quickly finds information about the digital documents.

Save Time and Money

Automatically, every two weeks, your Science & Technology on CD profile is run against all new publications received by NTIS and the publications in your selected category are digitized for your order. Now, instead of paying an average of $30 for each publication you purchase on a demand basis, you pay only $3.50 for each publication on the CD-ROM(s) you receive.

Additional benefits of the Science & Technology on CD

  • It includes more titles than the SRIM service -- the documents that microfiche can't handle, like color and oversized pages.
  • It uses less storage space than microfiche.
  • It uses more convenient equipment.

Price: $60,000 annually for the full collection or $3.50 per publication.
