Digital final reports available

We completed our project to digitize and make available via the web 425 of our pre-2003 final reports. This involved digitizing about 90,000 pages. These reports make up the majority of our knowledge base, now with a total of 581 reports available.

A major challenge in this project was copyright permissions for figures and tables in older reports. In the pre-internet days we had requested permission to use figures in tables in the report. However, we did not specifically request rights to use electronically. Taking the conservative approach we used a contractor to obtain digital permission from the original copyright holders.
