  • Who should participate.The Dialogue welcomes individuals interested in exploring how the EPA can best make use of libraries for public access to environmental information. We anticipate dynamic and productive discussions with a wide variety of groups. We have representatives of all types of libraries, environmental organizations, community groups and tribal government, local, state and regional environmental agencies, small and large community planning organizations, industry, elected officials, and the environmental press. We encourage interested citizens to join the discussion and devote a minimum of one-half an hour each day studying background materials, reading discussion messages and periodically contributing comments and questions. The results of the Dialogue will inform EPA as it considers the role of librarians as a bridge to communities for environmental data and information. Thank you for your interest in this important discussion.
