The National Technical Information Service (external link) (NTIS) is a resource for scientific, technical, engineering, and business related publications. It contains approximately 3 million reports funded by the US government.

ETH-Bibliothek holds many of these reports, either in the form of printed documents or in the form of microfiches. Since many of the microfiches are not indexed in the Knowledge Portal, the NTIS database can be used as a research tool.


If you find reports in NTIS that are of interest for you please contact reports@library.ethz.ch.


Courses are held by appointment. They explain the various search strategies and features using specific examples.
