Resources based on Reports, Workshops, and Events
The information contained in the Academies' consensus reports has been used to develop a wide range of derivative materials, from booklets to videos to posters. These materials make Academies findings accessible to a number of different audiences, from educators to the scientific community to members of the public.

These booklets have been written by the National Research Council on a variety of topics with particular interest for the general public, based on information from NRC reports. Some booklets draw exclusively from one report, while others are tied to many reports.
These presentations were delivered at various events and workshops hosted by the division. Some presentations are Powerpoint slide decks. Others are video files that include both the slides of speakers along with an synchronous audio track recorded live at the presentation. The presentations are for use by your organization. Please credit The National Research Council when using these slides.
The National Academies Communications Office produces a bi-monthly podcast based on recent reports called "Sounds of Science." You can access all "Sounds of Science" episodes through the iTunes store, or through the central Academies podcasting page.
