 EPA is publishing this guide to assist
 the public in locating information
 materials on toxic substances.  An
 attempt has been made to provide a
 cross section of materials that
 represent a wide variety of viewpoints.
 Except for the materials originating
 within EPA, the Agency cannot be held
 responsible for the accuracy of any of
 the information given, and does not
 necessarily endorse any of the positions
 stated or products cited in any of the

             Preface
     This Guide contains a listing of
over 100 information materials  (publica-
tions and audio-visual presentations)
available to the public to increase
their understanding of toxic substances
and related issues.  Included are
materials on environmental and occupa-
tional health, toxic substances,
pesticides, and the Federal laws enacted
to protect public health and the environ-
ment from the dangers posed by toxic
substances.

     For each publication, a title,
publication date,  ordering source,
cost (if any), and a brief description
is given.  To order any of the materials
listed turn to the "Index of Sources"
in the back of this Guide; the location
from which you can obtain your selections
will be opposite the "Source Number"
cited in the publication's desciption.

     The selections listed in this
Guide do not encompass the entire
universe of materials published on
toxics substances issues produced by
government or non-government organiza-
tions,  but those included do represent
a major  portion of those that are
written in a non-technical manner.  As
new materials become available, they
will be added, as appropriate, to the
contents of this Guide.
