Students And Faculty Will Have Access To Over 1,000 Space-Focused Technical Papers
Under an agreement with the Canaveral Council of Technical Societies (CCTS), Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has gained access to a unique archive of over 1,000 space-focused technical papers from more than 40 years of annual Florida Space Congress conferences dating back to 1966.
The Hunt Library at Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus will digitize and catalog the materials for access by students and faculty at the university’s residential campuses in Florida and Arizona as well as the Worldwide Campus, which encompasses online degree programs and more than 150 classroom locations around the globe. The general public can request printed versions of the papers through interlibrary loan or in person at the library.
CCTS, an association of engineering, technical and scientific societies with chapters on Florida’s Space Coast, sponsored the Space Congress events to promote the exchange of space-related scientific and technical information. During the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, these annual events were the nation’s premier space conferences, attracting thousands of industry, government and university peer-reviewed papers.
After a long hiatus, CCTS sponsored the 42nd Space Congress in 2012 and plans to continue organizing the events and adding their technical papers to the archive at Embry-Riddle. The archive had been in storage at the CCTS offices in Cocoa Beach, with limited availability to non-CCTS members. One of the CCTS member organizations, a Florida chapter of the National Space Society, requested on behalf of Embry-Riddle that the archive be transferred to the university to serve as a resource for student and faculty research.
