Institutions and individuals actively engaged in research disseminate their results and experiences in a variety of ways: journals, books, technical reports, conference presentations. Books and papers submitted to journals are usually restricted by the publishers' copyright, whereas technical reports, conference proceedings and other documents are usually freely available. Documents in this second category may represent the leading edge of research, containing valuable information of interest to other researchers, but there is no widely accepted standard method for dissemination of this kind of document. Often, this material is overlooked because interested parties are unaware of its existence. The Technical Reports Search service aims to solve some of these problems. It provides a centralised access point, via the World Wide Web, to collections of documents stored on ftp sites around the world. A user can perform searches over all the documents included in the service, or access an individual collection and retrieve any document of interest. Authors and Document Collection Maintainers can easily include their documents in the service whilst maintaining total control over all the documents they make available.
