When initiating a new or significantly modified research effort, you are invited to contact the technical library for a comprehensive literature search. This search will assist you in locating existing research on your topic and prevent possible duplication of efforts. Citations will be retrieved from several government databases and open literature sources, and we will provide you with a form verifying that an adequate literature search was performed for your R&D case file, as is encouraged in section 3.1 of AFRLI61-201. All search results are compiled into PDF format for convenient storage. Contact the technical library by phone at 882-3212, e-mail or in person for a topic consultation and to discuss the keywords that you would like to have searched.

Please see "How to Request a New Literature Search" for additional guidance.
