The National Reports Collection at the British Library is a collection of published annual reports, technical reports and other publications from private and public sector organisations. It forms part of the British Library's gray literature holdings.[1] The collection adds approximately 17,000 works every year from more than 4,000 sources. Between 1980 and 1998, it collected 182,000 documents.[2]

Increasing the availability of reports in the collection forms part of research being done by the MAGiC Project at Cranfield University.[3]
