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.
Building and Fire Research Photographic Collection
Materials in this collection are from the Fire Research Photograph Collection, and the Structural Testing Photograph Collection. Due to the soaring volume of testing in 1909, the equipment and staff of the structural materials laboratories of the Geological Survey were transferred to the Bureau of Standards on July 1, 1910. Well before this augmentation of the Bureau, its test program had already crowded into the last of the laboratories available at the Bureau. For more information about this collection, click here
