ADAMS at Work: Understanding the Public Version of NRC’s Agency Document Repository

Sponsored by the Office of Information Services

NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) has undergone many changes and iterations in the past five years. Those who may have searched the publicly-accessible version of ADAMS in the past may find searching its current version, Web-based ADAMS (WBA), a completely new experience. This workshop will demonstrate the current system, and will answer questions from attendees on a wide variety of topics, such as:

  • an introduction to WBA
  • the ADAMS Public Library vs. the ADAMS Legacy Library
  • what’s in ADAMS vs. what’s not in ADAMS
  • types of materials found in ADAMS
  • searching WBA
  • saving WBA searches
  • getting copies of non-electronic materials found in ADAMS

This workshop is 1) an introduction for those who have never searched NRC’s Web-based Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS-WBA), 2) a refresher for those who seldom search WBA or searched one of its predecessors, and 3) an opportunity for WBA “power users” to ask questions about the current system. This workshop has it all!
