What is the Copper Technical Reference Library?

The Copper Technical Reference Library provides an online bibliographic database of the world's literature on copper, copper alloys and copper technology since 1965. The Copper Technical Reference Library covers copper technology from smelting and hydrometallurgy through the performance of copper and copper alloys in their end-use applications and service environments. It references data on the properties and performance of copper and copper alloys and on applications of the copper metals. Over 77,000 documents have been indexed into this database, including 5582 documents published between 1863 and 1964. This database provides international coverage as well as numerous non-serial publications.
