The Cal Poly Pomona Library has a large collection of reports from NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NACA, National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, was the predecessor to NASA, and the Library also has many NACA reports.
All of the print reports are in compact shelving on the 1st floor. Microfiche cabinets are on the 2nd floor. Ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance with the microfiche reader/printers.
Most NASA & NACA reports are now available online. Use the NASA Technical Report Server (NTRS).
If we don't have the reports you need and you can't find them on the NTRS, try Document Delivery. Provide as much information as possible on the request form, especially the report number, title, author, and publication date.
Through 1991 the Cal Poly Pomona Library received nearly every report in the series listed below. We have very few reports dated later than the early 90s.
It's not always easy to determine if a particular report is available in the Library. You can search the Library Catalog by report title or report number, but many reports have not been individually cataloged. You can also go to the shelf location (call number) noted below for the series and look for the report number. Please don't hesitate ask at the Reference Desk if you need help locating specific reports.
