NATIONAL BUREAU OF STANDARDS
The National Bureau of Standards' was established by an act of Congress March 3, 1901.
The ,ureau's overall goal is to strengthen -and advance the Nation's science and technology
and facilitate their effective application for public benefit. To this end, the Bureau conducts
research and provides: (1) a basis for the Nation's physical measurement system, (2) scientific
and technological services for industry and government, (3) a technical basis for equity in trade,
and (4) technical services to promote public safety. The Bureau consists of the Institute for
Basic Standards, the Institute for Materials Research, the Institute for Applied Technology,
the Institute for C(omputer Sciences and Technology, and the Office for Information Programs.
TlE INSTITUTE FOR BASIC STANDARDS provides the central basis within the United
States of a complete and consistent system of physical measurement: coordinates that system
with measurement systems of other nations: and furnishes essential services leading to accurate
and uniform physical measurements throughout the Nation's scientific community, industry.
and commerce. The Institute consists of the Office of Measurement Services, the Office of
Radiation Measurement and the following Center and divisions:
Applied Mathematics - Electricity --- Mechanics -- Heat - Optical Physics - Center
for R;diation Research: Nuclear Sciences Applied Radiation - Laboratory Astrophysics'
-- Cryogenics .- lectromagnetics '-- Time and Frequency:.
THL INSTITUTTE FOR MAT'I ERIALS RESIARCH conducts materials research leading to
riiproved methods of meastirement, standards. and data on the properties of well-characterized
materils needed by industry, commerce, educational institutions, and Government: provides
advise ory :nd research services to other Government agencies and develops. produces, and
distributes standard reference materials. IThe Institute consists of the Office of Standard
Reference Materials. the Office of Air and W.atter Measurement. and the following divisions:
Analytical (hemistr N -- Polsmers - Metalltkrgy - Inorganic Materials - Reactor
Radiation . Physical (hemistry.
THE INSTITIUTE FOR APPLIEI) TECHNOLOGY provides technical services to promote
the use of available technology and to facilitate technological innovation in industry and
Government: cooperates with public and private organizations leading to the development of
technological standards (including ma4ndtor safetfc standards), codes and methods of test;
and provides technical advice and services to Government :agencies upon request. The Insti-
tute consists of the following divisions and C(enters.

TH INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTER SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY conducts research
atnd provides technical services designed to aid government t agencies in improving cost effec-
tiveness in the condiuci of their programs through the selection, acquisition. and effective
utilization of auttomnatic data processing equipment: and serves as the principal focus within
the executive branch for the development of Federal standards for automatic data processing
equipment, techniques, and computer languages. -The Institute consists of the following

THE OFFICE FOR INFORMAL TIION PROGRAMS promotes optimum dissemination and
accessibility of scientific information generated within NBS and other agencies of the Federal
Government: promotes the development of the National Standard Reference Data System and
a system of information analysis centers dea iing with the broader aspects of the National
leiastirement System: provides appropriate services to ensure that the NBS staff has optimum
accessibility to the scientific information of the world. The Office consists of the following
