                         An Information Service for EPA HQ Staff from the Headquarters Library


 Through an EPA/NOAA joint project, the
 combined records of the 28 EPA Libraries and
 22 NOAA Libraries and Information Centers
 are now available to you on a CD-ROM
 workstation. EPA/NOAA LINC is an
 automated catalog combining CD-ROM
 technology with artificial intelligence. There
 are several advantages to using LINC:

 o     Keyword Searching: using natural
       language or a combination of
       keywords, LINC produces a list of
       relevant information.

 o     Limit Search: For example, your
       search can be limited to only
       items in the Headquarters Library
       or by year of publication.

 o     Help Function: LINC has detailed
       help screens which can be
       accessed at any time during your
       search, or the Library's reference
       staff is always available to assist

 o     Audio Tutorial: Available to help
       you use the system easily and
      LINC is located near the Reference
Desk. Please contact a member of the
Library's reference staff or call 260-5921 to
arrange a training session.  Decisions  —>
Environmental Action.  We can provide the
information for decisions that lead to
environmental action. We'll keep you informed on
resources and services to help you work smarter,
as well as letting you know about developments in
new areas. This is also an open invitation for you
to use IDEA to share your new developments with
others in the Agency. Contact us for more details.

tracking down a specific story that was in the
Washington Post, we have the databases for
you.  The Headquarters Library has
access to over 400 databases covering a
variety of disciplines (environment,
government R & D, human resources
management, medicine, business, computer
science, marketing, science & technology),
and a growing number of major newspapers
in full text.  Most database records include a
summary of the material.
      An online search can be customized to
answer your request for specific technical or
business related information.  It is easy to
have a search done. Discuss your topic with
