EPA National Library Catalog

The EPA National Library Network is composed of libraries and repositories located in the Agency's offices, research centers, and specialized laboratories, as well as web-based access to electronic collections. The EPA National Library Catalog consists of several related databases that comprise the shared library catalog. You can use the Library Catalog to locate books, reports, journals, and audiovisual materials on a variety of topics. Then you can locate an EPA Library near you and request materials.

Please note: Materials in the libraries are subject to the use and lending practices of the individual library that holds the item. Some libraries allow direct lending while others may require interlibrary loan, a process where a requester asks his local library to request the item from the network. If you require an interlibrary loan, please contact your local public, corporate or academic library to arrange for a loan.
