About NRIM/NIRIM Library

The National Research Institute for Metals (NRIM) was established in 1956, and the National Institute for Research in Inorganic Materials (NIRIM) was established in 1966 under auspices of the former Science and Technology Agency. Both institutes were merged in 2001 to the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). Over the past 55 years, these institutes have produced many significant achievements that are used in advanced materials science and technology nowadays.

The NIMS Digital Library NIMS eSciDoc digitized reports on those achievements and provided open access to them.
