Technical Reports


The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) technical report collections at the Research Library include ORNL authored reports as well as those from many other institutions.  Most ORNL reports after 1996 and many earlier reports are digitized and linked in the Library Catalog.  The library will scan an older ORNL report and make a PDF copy available through the catalog, upon request.

Finding Reports

Search the Library Catalog using the “guest” button to access the catalog and locate ORNL reports by report number, author or keyword.  You can request help finding an ORNL report from the Research Library.

SciTech Connect

SciTech Connect (formerly Information Bridge and Energy Citations Database) provides free public access to bibliographic citations and many full-text documents of Department of Energy (DOE) science, technology and engineering research information.  

Getting Copies

If a PDF copy of an ORNL technical report is not available in the catalog, the Research Library will scan the paper copy and make a PDF copy available through the library catalog upon request. To request that a report be scanned contact the Research Library by email or phone (865) 574-6744.

The Research Library does not inter-library loan reports or scan reports published by other institutions.  To find technical reports from other institutions search SciTech Connect or contact the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). NTIS provides a catalog for online ordering of technical reports and other government publications.
