The NIST Digital Archives (NDA) include collections of images and publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its predecessor, the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). NIST is a non-regulatory agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce. These collections continue to grow as more images and full-text publications are digitized.
Featured: Summary Technical Reports
The NBS Summary Technical Reports (STRs) were typically brief summaries of research, developments, and test activities conducted by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS). Report topics were chosen for their importance to contemporary scientists, engineers, and industry members. The reports were published by the NBS Office of Public Information and were sometimes included in the NBS Technical News Bulletin. The series began in 1946 as the NBS Technical Reports, and was changed to the NBS Summary Technical Reports in 1953. The series was discontinued in 1975.
