Yucca Mountain Research Collection: Manuscript Collection

Information and resources for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Yucca Mountain Research Collection

What's Inside the Manuscript Collection?

The manuscript collection can be found in the basement of the DeLaMare Library, and is housed in archival boxes and folders. The collection consists of technical reports, telephone records, email communications, research articles, fliers, and other items that the University of Nevada, Reno received during its time as a repository for the NRC. The collection was rehoused and described for the finding aid, but was kept in its original order as received by the NRC. You can find items in this section of the collection by browsing the finding aid, or you can look at highlights from the collection listed below.
