Technical Reports at the Oregon Tech Library
Technical Reports (written for communications courses) are submitted to the library by the Communications faculty, and held for 3 years. Any accompanying documents with identifiable personal information (e.g. cover letters) should be removed prior to the submission of the reports to the library.
The library has an electronic collection of tech reports. These are organized by topic, then by year and professor. You will need to logon with your Oregon Tech logon to view the reports.
Reports should be submitted via the professor. Talk to your professor if you want your report to be submitted.
Technical reports can be checked out from the Library for 4 weeks.
Technical Reports are not cataloged, but are arranged on open shelving by subject categories. Access the list of the Technical Reports currently held by the library.
The list is searchable by: Subject; Students’ Last and First Names; Title; Year; and Instructors’ Names. Each category can be arranged alphabetically or chronologically for easier searching.
