Abstract
The three levels of thermal neutron sources are introduced--University laboratory sources, infrastructure sources and world-class sources--and the needs for each kind and their inter- dependence will be emphasized. A description of the possibilities for University sources based on a (alpha) -Be reactions or spontaneous fission emission is given, and current experience with them is described. A new generation of infrastructure sources is needed to continue the regional programs based on small reactors. Some possibilities for accelerator sources that could not meet this need are considered.
