The National Standard Reference Data System (NSRDS) coordinates on a national scale the compilation and dissemination of reference data in the physical sciences. The primary aim of the program, which involves the efforts of many groups in universities, government laboratories, and private industry, is to provide compilations of critically evaluated physical and chemical property data. Evaluated databases of physical and chemical properties of substances are available in printed form, on magnetic tapes, and through online computer networks. This document provides a comprehensive list of the products available from the NSRDS for the years 1964-1984. Following an introduction, the document includes the following sections: Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data (Reprints, Supplements, Reprint Packages); Other NSRDS Data Publications; Critical Bibliographies and Indexes (the National Bureau of Standards Series and other publishers); Computer Programs for Handling Technical Data; and the NBS (National Bureau of Standards) Magnetic Tape Series. Indexes to authors, properties, and material classes are given, as well as information on ordering publications and current prices. (THC)
