Directorates and Divisions



For simplicity in organization, and to identify major research areas within the laboratory, a coded division numbering system has been adopted. The major work areas are designated as directorates, which are made up of more specialized groups called divisions. Divisions are separated into more highly focused groups known as branches, and branches may again be divided into sections. An alphabetical listing of all Web servers on the web is also available.
