Research reports published by state institutions and research institutions
The ETH-Bibliothek holds a collection of reports on microfiche:
- Subjects: technology and natural sciences, especially energy technology and nuclear research, but also covering social, economic and political fields
- Era: from 1910 to the end of the 1990s
- Origin: mainly from the USA, European countries and Switzerland
The following can be searched or ordered via the Knowledge Portal:
- Titles of the main report series
- A selection of reports on microfiche
For most reports on microfiche, there is no reference on the Knowledge Portal, and in many cases it is not possible to search for them using the report number.
Please therefore use the form to submit a request.
Microfiches and microfilms are made available in the InfoCenter and remain there for 7 working days.
Readers and enlargers (with printer and PC) are available for viewing microfiches and microfilms from the ETH-Bibliothek stock.
You can print out or scan in articles or individual pages for yourself. Bring a data carrier (USB stick) with you to save the scan.
The staff will copy max. 30 pages on behalf of users. There is a charge for this service: Fees (pdf, 188 kB)
If you require delivery by courier or post, you will receive duplicate copies of the reports on microfiche (call number: MIKR) on loan. They can therefore only be read using a microfiche reader.
