According to the announcement, NTIS maintains and disseminates the nation's largest collection of scientific, technical, engineering, and related business information. The collection contains nearly 3 million documents spanning more than 350 subject areas. Many of those items will now be available directly from the Web site. Approximately 1,000 new items are added each week and many are available only through NTIS. All records are abstracted, indexed, and cataloged in the NTIS Database.
