Our public service provides and maintains a library database on the environment and the law, conducts research and educates on environmental and low income environmental issues. Reach us at www.ecolawinfo.org. Library materials can be used in the library. The new version of our computer library catalogue has over 20,000 records of materials. Reference advice on useful resources is available both to visitors and to those who contact us by phone or email. Staff can provide bibliographies on your topic, and for out-of-towners, suggest possible means of accessing resources locally. Our library website contains information on frequently asked questions and links to other sources of information. The Resource Library existence depends on support from foundations, government agencies, and many individuals. This help is especially important now, when government assistance has declined dramatically even as the need for public education and citizen action on environmental issues has never been greater.
