Finding Technical Reports - NuReg


Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NuReg)

The University of Arizona Library has microfiche and print copies of most technical reports issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NuReg) issued from 1974 through present. Technical reports on microfiche are organized by report number.

There is some overlap in coverage for NuReg technical reports, either by format (print and microfiche) or between issuing agencies (e.g. reports issued either by NuReg, the National Technical Information Service - NTIS, or the Government Printing Office - GPO). 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 library catalog.)

In summary, NuReg reports may be retreived from one of the following four locations in the Science-Engineering Library:

Format Dates Location
Print 1974-present

Select print copies (distributed as part of our GPO Profile; located under SuDoc number (Y3 N88) on the 5th floor of Science Library in compact shelving). Most of these reports cannot be found in the library catalog.
