NUCLEAR SAFETY INFORMATION CENTER
The Nuclear Safety Information Center was established in March 1963 at the Oak
Ridge National Laboratory under the sponsorship of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission
to serve as a focal point for the collection, storage, evaluation, and dissemination
of nuclear safety information. A system of keywords is used to index the information
catalogued by the center. The title, authors, installation, abstract and keywords
for each document reviewed is recorded on magnetic tape at the central computer fa-
cility in Oak Ridge. The references are catalogued according to the following cate-
1. General Safety Criteria
2. Siting of Nuclear Facilities
3. Transportation and Handling of Radioactive Materials
4. Aerospace Safety
5. Accident Analysis
6. Reactor Transients, Kinetics, and Stability
7. Fission Product Release, Transport, and Removal
8. Sources of Energy Release Under Accident Conditions
9. Nuclear Instrumentation, Control, and Safety Systems
10. Electrical Power Systems
11. Containment of Nuclear Facilities
12. Plant Safety Features
13. Radiochemical Plant Safety
14. Radionuclide Release and Movement in the Environment
15. Environmental Surveys, Monitoring and Radiation Exposure of Man
16. Meteorological Considerations
17. Operational Safety and Experience
18. Safety Analysis and Design Reports
Computer programs have been developed which enable NSIC to (1) produce a
quarterly indexed bibliography of its accessions (issued with ORNL-NSIC report
numbers); (2) operate a routine program of Selective Dissemination of Information
(SDI) to individuals according to their particular profile of interest and (3) make
retrospective searches of the references on the tapes.
Other services of the center include principally (1) preparation of state-of-the-
art reports (issued with ORNL-NSIC report numbers); (2) preparation of the quarterly
technical progress review, Nuclear Safety; (3) answering technical inquiries as time
is available, and (4) counsel and guidance on nuclear safety problems.
Services of the NSIC are available without charge to government agencies,
research and educational institutions, and the nuclear industry. Under no circum-
stances do these services include furnishing copies of any documents (except NSIC
reports) although all documents may be examined at the center by qualified personnel.
Inquiries concerning the capabilities and operation of the center may be addressed
