What is the status of EPA's digitization efforts?

Since 1995, EPA has been digitizing Agency documents and improving electronic access to Agency publications freely on the web. 

All EPA documents that have been digitized are available through the National Service Center for Environmental Publications (NSCEP) Web site. To date, EPA has completed digitization of nearly 70,000 titles, available for free through the NSCEP database.

The intent is to digitize the remaining EPA documents to make them readily available electronically. The priority and sequencing of the documents to be digitized has been determined collectively by EPA's professional librarians. Prior to electronic conversion, EPA librarians create and prepare detailed manifests as they prepare documents for digitization. Documents are tracked during the entire digitization process. At least two paper copies of the materials will be retained within the Library Network.
