Brief descriptions are given for each downloadable file, each of which may be downloaded by clicking on its link. We suggest that you save download files to your disk into separate folder and then follow instructions to install. If it is a compressed file (with extension .zip) you need to first uncompress it into separate folder. Some antivirus and/or firewall software might interfere with normal installation process. It is standard practice to disable such software before installation. Don't forget to turn it back on!

NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library, NNIST 14 Tandem Library and NIST 14 GC Method / Retention Index Library are not available for download. All libraries are available from corresponding lists of distributors: NIST MS 14, Tandem and RI.
Updates to v.2.0f can be downloaded here. These are software-only updates. The NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library is NOT included in any of these downloads. Update to v.2.2 is not available at present time.
|NIST 08 Software Update||This update is for use with the version of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library (NIST 08). The update searches for the NIST 08 software released in July 2008 (NIST MS Search build June 25, 2008) or later, replaces it with the latest version, then makes backup copies of the replaced files. Only a manual uninstall of the update by restoring the backup files is possible.||Download|
|NIST 02 Software Update||This update is for use with the 2002 version of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library (NIST 02). This software update should be used only with the software accompanying NIST 02 MS Library (do not use with the software accompanying NIST 98 or other versions). Please refer to readme_02.txt included in the zip file for complete update instructions before performing the update.||Download|
|NIST 02 MS Library Update||This update is for use with the 2002 version of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library (NIST 02). It will add “Other DBs” field to the NIST02 MS Library. This software update should be used only with the NIST 02 MS Library (it will not work with NIST 98 or versions later than NIST 02). Download the update (file NIST02LibUpd.exe) and run it on your computer to update the library||Download|
|Updates for older versions of the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library|
|MS Search Program v.2.0 Upgrade||This upgrade installs version 2.0 of the NIST MS Search Program. This upgrade will not replace your NIST MS Search Program v 1.6 or 1.7, but it will upgrade any previously distributed version 2.0 files. Please refer to readme_v20.txt included in the zip file for more details. This software upgrade should not be applied to the software accompanying the NIST 02 MS Library. Please read this document before downloading the complete zip file. For this upgrade to work properly, it is important that the MS Search Program is not open when the files are extracted.||Download|
|MS Search Program v.1.7 Upgrade||This upgrade converts version 1.6 of the Search program to version 1.7. This package only includes the files necessary for this upgrade. To upgrade from earlier versions (version 1.5 and earlier) please contact NIST Standard Reference Data. Additional upgrade instructions||Download|
