Non-government tech reports on microfiche (shelved alphabetically) A, B and C Which search engines and full text sources to use will greatly depend on the particular title of interest. MNCAT will help you with journal or series titles. For example, you'll find "AIAA Paper", but not something so granular as "Trade Studies for Air Launching a Small Launch Vehicle (AIAA-2005-0621)". MNCAT will show you where to find online sources in most cases. Beyond MNCAT, it may be helpful to know that NATO documents from AGARD / RTO are online from roughly 1998 to current. AIAA Papers are online from 1996. Journal of Chemical Research is online from 1997.
