   CISTI, the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information, is one of the world's major sources for information in all areas of science, technology, engineering and medicine. CISTI began over 75 years ago as the library of the National Research Council of Canada, the leading agency for R&D in Canada, and became the National Science Library in 1957. The change to CISTI came in 1974 to reflect the wide scope of services provided and the increasing role in the development of electronic information products and services for the sci/tech community. Through this site a library catalog may be searched and document delivery is available.
