SciTech Connect provides free public access to full-text documents and bibliographic citations of DOE research report literature. Full-text documents are primarily from 1991 forward, but approximately 30% of the records with full-text are from earlier years. SciTech Connect includes STI documents that were produced by DOE, the DOE contractor community, and DOE grantees. STI documents from DOE predecessor agencies, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA), are also included. Legacy documents are added as they become available in electronic format. MARCrecords are available as soon as full-text documents are added to SciTech Connect.
