United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Lunchtime Workshop

New this year, the Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) will feature a lunchtime workshop for attendees on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 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

This workshop is for every user of the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). It is an introduction for those who have never searched the NRC's Web based ADAMS (WBA). It is a refresher for those who seldom search WBA or searched one of its predecessors, and it allows WBA "power users" to ask questions about the current system. This workshop has it all!

ADAMS has undergone many changes and iterations in the past 3 years. Those who may have searched the publicly accessible version of ADAMS in the past may find searching its current, Web-based version a completely new experience. This workshop will demonstrate the current system and answer questions from attendees on a wide variety of topics, such as the following:

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

Attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan to arrive promptly.

Workshop Presenter: Adam Glazer, Technical Librarian, Office of Information Services, 301–415–2032, adam.glazer@nrc.gov
