The Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) will feature a lunchtime workshop, sponsored by the Office of Information Services, for attendees on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m., (location to be announced). A description of the workshop appears below:
ADAMS at Work: Understanding the Public Version of the NRC’s Agency Document Repository
The NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) has undergone many changes and iterations in the past 4 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 is an introduction for those who have never searched ADAMS, is a refresher for those who seldom search WBA or searched one of its predecessors, and is an opportunity for WBA “power users” to ask questions. 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 nonelectronic materials found in ADAMS
Attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan to arrive promptly and bring your lunch.
