                A Note on This Edition of the Core List
This edition of the Core List is a complete revision of the second edition, which was
published in 2002 as EPA 260-R-01-001. The original Core List was published in 1993
as EPA publication EPA 220-R-93-007. The URLs in this document were current as of
September  2009,  but for  the  most  up-to-date  listings,  see the  online  version:
http://www.epa.gov/libraries/core/coretoc.htm .

This edition of the Core List has been revised to include many new resources. Several
sources from previous versions of the list  have been omitted because they have been
superseded by other items or are now out of print and difficult to obtain.

The EPA National Library Network plans to update the Core List periodically, expanding
it to include new information sources  and new media formats.  Previous editions of the
Core List can  be accessed via EPA's National Service Center for Environmental
Publications (NSCEP). Search NSCEP online at http://www.epa.gov/nscep .

                                  Introduction
The purpose of the Core List for an Environmental Reference Collection is to identify
key information resources in the areas of environmental protection, management, and
science.  The Core List was developed by EPA's National Library Network for EPA
information professionals, state environmental  librarians, environmental  librarians  in
other countries, and other individuals involved in developing or managing collections of
environmental information resources.

The Core  List was conceived  of  and originally compiled in the early  1990's.  The
resources in this edition were selected, compiled and organized by the librarians at the
EPA-RTP Library with input from the librarians of the EPA National Library Network.
The titles selected for the list were those deemed valuable by the librarians and  staff
working in EPA libraries in support of the Agency's mission.  The symbols listed below
are used throughout the document to indicate the following sub-sets of materials:

       *    Titles marked with an asterisk (*) were selected by a workgroup of EPA
            librarians as the essential reference collection elements that an EPA library
            should have onsite.

       +   Titles marked with a plus sign (+) indicate electronic resources that generally
            require a subscription or paid access.

The  resources in this  list provide  information  about  sustainability,  conservation,
pollution,  environmental  law,  atmospheric trends,  water  quality,  alternative  and
renewable energy, waste management, public policy, endangered species, and many other
environmental issues. Most of the titles on the list were published within the last ten years
and are readily available. Several are published serially. The list includes both print and
electronic resources.  Electronic resources were  selected without consideration  of the
sponsoring agency and may be hosted by commercial entities. The EPA does not endorse
commercial entities nor advocate their use.

The  Core  List is  presented  in  several sections.  Most  of  the sections  relate  to
environmental topics such as air  quality or water quality. A few sections  are composed of
specific types of documents such as general reference sources, which contains directories,
dictionaries, encyclopedias and  other sources that cross  subject boundaries. Entries are
arranged alphabetically within each section. Each entry includes the title, author or editor,
publication date, and publisher or distributor of the resource. Many of the entries include
a brief description of the resource as well.

A list of acronyms used can  be found at the end of the list. A list of key environmental
journals and a directory of publishers are also included.

                        Air Quality / Air Pollution
   Air pollution is the presence  of contaminants in the air in concentrations
   that prevent the normal dispersive ability of the air, and that interfere with
   biological processes and human economics.  Air quality standards are the
   level of pollutants prescribed by regulations  that are not  to be exceeded
   during a  given time  in a defined area.  See also the section on Motor
   Vehicles and Emissions.

              Chemical Properties and Characteristics
   Chemical properties are the attributes, traits, and/or peculiarities evident
   during a chemical  reaction  that enable scientists to distinguish  one
   substance from  another.   Four  chemical  characteristics—ignitability,
   corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity—are used to define hazardous  waste
   under RCRA and are  of particular interest  to EPA.  The titles  below
   include chemical reference sources and handbooks that address chemical
   properties and characteristics from both a general and  environmental
   perspective.  See also the sections on Pesticides and Toxic Substances
   and Test Methods and Standards.

                             Climate Change
   Climate change refers to any significant  change in measures of climate
   (such as temperature, precipitation, or wind) lasting for an extended period
   (decades or longer). Climate change may result from natural factors, such
   as  changes  in the sun's intensity or  slow changes in the  Earth's orbit
   around the  sun;  natural  processes  within  the  climate system  (e.g.,
   changes  in   ocean  circulation);  human  activities  that   change  the
   atmosphere's composition (e.g., through burning fossil fuels)  and the land
   surface  (e.g.,  deforestation,  reforestation, urbanization,  desertification,
   etc.).

                       Ecology and Ecosystems
   Ecology is  the relationship of living things to one another  and their
   environment, or the study of such relationships. An ecosystem  is defined
   as place having unique  physical features, encompassing  air, water, and
   land,  and habitats supporting plant and animal life.  Subtopics include,  but
   are not limited to, conservation  biology, forest ecology, landscape ecology,
   plant  ecology, soil ecology, and wetland ecology.

            Environmental Equity / Environmental Justice
   Environmental equity is equal protection from environmental hazards for
   individuals, groups or  communities regardless  of  race,  ethnicity, or
   economic  status. Environmental justice  is the fair treatment of all people
   regardless of race, color, national origin, or income  with respect to the
   development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws,
   regulations, and policies. Fair treatment implies that  no population of
   people should  be  forced to shoulder  a disproportionate share of the
   negative environmental impacts of pollution or environmental hazards due
   to a lack of political or economic strength.

          Environmental Law, Legislation and Regulations
   EPA came  into being through legislation passed in 1970, alongside the
   National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the National Environmental
   Education Act.  The  Agency was authorized by Congress to  create and
   enforce  regulations in order to put environmental  laws  into effect.  EPA
   regulations  cover a range of environmental and public health protection
   issues, from setting standards for clean water to specifying cleanup levels
   for toxic waste sites  to controlling  air pollution from industry and other
   sources. The  titles in this section contain  information sources on  related
   laws, legislation, and  regulations.

         Environmental Risk Assessment and Management
   Risk is a measure of the probability that damage to life, health, property,
   and/or  the environment  will  occur  as  a  result  of  a  given  hazard.
   Environmental  risk  assessment  is   the  qualitative  and  quantitative
   evaluation of  the  risk posed to human health and/or the environment by
   the  actual or  potential  presence and/or  use  of  specific  pollutants.
   Environmental risk management is the process of evaluating and selecting
   alternative regulatory and non-regulatory responses to environmental risk.

                             Nanotechnology
   Nanotechnology is a highly diverse field of applied science that involves
   working  with  matter at  the  atomic and  molecular level, generally with
   structures  less than  100 nanometers in size. Nanotechnology has both
   applications  and  implications  for  the  environment.  EPA is  supporting
   research in this technology while evaluating its regulatory responsibility to
   protect the environment and human health.

                   Pesticides and Toxic Substances
   Pesticides are substances or mixtures used to prevent,  destroy, repel, or
   mitigate pests. The term also includes any substance or mixture intended
   for use as a plant regulator,  defoliant, or desiccant. Toxic substances are
   chemicals or mixtures that may present an unreasonable risk of injury to
   human health or the environment.  Pesticides and toxic substances are
   chemicals that can  have detrimental effects on the health  of humans,
   animals,  and wildlife,  and are  regulated by EPA  under  legislation that
   includes the Toxic Substances  Control  Act, and the Federal  Insecticide,
   Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.

                          Pollution Prevention
   Pollution  prevention  is reducing  or  eliminating waste  at  the  source by
   modifying production processes,  promoting the use of  non-toxic or less-
   toxic substances,  implementing  conservation  techniques, and  re-using
   materials rather than putting them into the waste stream.  See  also the

                    Water Quality / Water Pollution
   Water  pollution  is  the  presence  in  water  of  enough  harmful  or
   objectionable material to damage the water's quality. Water quality criteria
   are the levels of water quality expected to render a body of water suitable
   for its designated use.  Criteria are based on specific levels of pollutants
   that would make the water harmful if used for drinking,  swimming, farming,
   fish production, or industrial  processes.
