EPA Library Restoration Pact Finalized
Follow up to previous postings on the EPA library closures, today this news release from the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER):
"The Memorandum of Agreement between the EPA and the American Federation of Government Employees becomes final today....EPA will not, however, re-open its specialized library for research on the properties and effects of new chemicals which held one of the world's most comprehensive technical collections on pesticides and other compounds. EPA did pledge to reopen a Chemical Library as part of its re-opened Headquarters Library in Washington, D.C. with a 'professional librarian with knowledge of chemical information' and access to an unspecified 'specialized chemical collection.'"
