Finding Technical Reports - NUREG


Nuclear Regulatory Commission guides (NUREG)

NUREG-series publications include reports or brochures on regulatory decisions, results of research, results of incident investigations, and other technical and administrative information. The University of Arizona Libraries have microfiche and print copies of most NUREG reports issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission since 1974. Technical reports on microfiche are organized by report number.

There is some overlap in coverage for NUREG reports, either by format (print and microfiche) or among issuing agencies. Select duplicate print reports can be found on the 5th floor of the Science-Engineering Library at Y3 N88 (Note: Many of these reports cannot be found in the catalog.)

Find NUREG reports in one of the following four locations in the Science-Engineering Library:
