There are over 5,50,000 reports. A significant number of them are available in microfilm (micro card / microfiche) and some on CD-ROM.

New Reports are purchased through book acquisition unit. Many are received on exchange and gratis. Reports are catalogued and assigned subject descriptor as per the INIS subject headings. Reports are arranged in cabinets as per Report No. Microfiche and micro-cards are arranged separately.

Automation : Cataloguing and circulation of the reports is done through ILM Software. Selected reports are scanned and stored in form of pdf files on the servers. These files are then linked with bibliographic details of reports in ILMS so as to enable users to search and view full text report online.
