The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) indexes and abstracts defense-related government-sponsored scientific and technical reports. Most reports published since the late '90's are available as pdf files.
The link below provides access to their public search as well as to the R&E Gateway, which has an enhanced interface and provides access to additional documents not available on the public site. We encourage our U.S. students, faculty and staff to register for the R&E Gateway. Click on Login/Register or Search DoD Technical Reports to register.
The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is a division of the Library of Congress that produces analytical, non-partisan reports. Unfortunately, they do not maintain a public website. See our guide below for links to many free and subscription sites where you can find CRS reports. You can also request print copies from your Congressional Representative.
CRS reports are often updated, so try to find the most recent version using the resources in our guide.

Government and other agencies produce a wide variety of reports relevant for defense manpower research. The Library owns some of these reports and many are available for free on the Internet. If you are an NPS student, faculty or staff member doing mission-related research, if we don't have it, we can probably get it for you!
The following list of agencies producing or disseminating defense-related reports is not comprehensive - consult the Library's web site and see the Reports section of the Business, Management & Economics guide for additional resources.
