In its 40 years of service, OAR has written over 80 Reports of Investigations and thousands of smaller reports. A listing of our Reports of Investigations and other special reports is provided below. Most of the reports are out of print but several are still available (readily available reports are in bold letters). If you are interested in one of our Out of Print reports, you are welcome to visit our library here in Moundville, or contact us to inquire about special printing upon request.
