OSTI.GOV is a portal to free, publicly-available DOE-sponsored R&D results including technical reports, bibliographic citations, journal articles, conference papers, books, multimedia and data information. OSTI.GOV was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) to increase access to science, technology, and engineering research information from DOE and its predecessor agencies. This database was formerly known as SciTech Connect.

The National Technical Reports Library provides access to US Federal government technical reports in science and technology.  It indexes about 2,000,000 reports and currently provides access to PDF copies of some 800,000 reports published since 1995. (More reports will be added, as pre-1995 reports are scanned.)  Note that while access is free to the public, you must register with NTRL to gain access, and you may only download five reports per session.  Also, free access is only available within the borders of the United States of America.

Available as part of the Materials Science & Engineering Database, Earthquake Engineering Abstracts contains earthquake engineering and earthquake studies from journal articles, conference papers, technical reports, maps, videos, slides, and computer files. Topics include structural dynamics, seismology, geology, architecture, political science, economics, planning, public policy, and hazards mitigation as they relate to earthquake studies.

The Technical Report Archive & Image Library (TRAIL) is a collaborative project from nearly 40 academic libraries working to build a complete collection of digitized technical reports. Project members identify, acquire, catalog, and digitize technical reports issued primarily prior to 1976, with some reports as late as 1999. Currently over one million pages of technical report content are available.
