Between 1959 and 1977, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) published a total of 475 technical reports in a series where the report number took the form “NASA TR R-#”, and where the “#” indicates the numbers 1 through 475. Known as the “Technical Report R” series, the reports were almost universally distributed to libraries in the Federal Depository Library Program, available for purchase by the general public from the United States government, or both. In the late twentieth century, digitized versions of these reports were added to the NASA Technical Reports Server and available for download by the general public. The purpose of this inventory is twofold. The first purpose is to indicate which reports in this series were available for download and which reports were unavailable for download as of November 1st, 2016. The second purpose of the inventory is to present evidence of public domain status for the reports that have such evidence available. Evidence of public domain status for reports came from the print and electronic versions of the Catalog of Government Publications, published by the United States Government Printing Office (now Government Publishing Office).
