Technical Reports and Documents

We own the catalogs for these documents from 1974/1976 - 1983/1984, but we also own the microfiche described in the first volume (1974/1976) even though this is not noted in IUCat anywhere.

NOTE: Documents are primarily in Spanish.

From the 1974/1976 introduction to the catalog:

It was an initial attempt to organize an effective system of registration and identification of technical reports and studies not included in the Official Records Series or in the SG Series of technical and and information documents. ...

In general the Catalog will contain documents in the following categories:

  1. Technical reports and other related documents resulting from direct or indirect services.
  2. Studies and reports prepared by specialists employed by the General Secretariat upon missions under the various programs.
  3. Studies and reports prepared by experts or advisors especially contracted to carry out missions under the various programs.
  4. Final reports of seminars and workshops.
  5. Papers presented by staff members at international and national conferences sponsored by other organizations.
  6. External surveys, studies and reports contracted by the OAS.
  7. Technical reports, theses or studies prepared by OAS fellowship holders.
  8. Such other reports or documents as are considered of special interest to the Organization.
