Follow the butterfly to join today's discussion.

In collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Environmental Law Institute, Information Renaissance hosted Libraries as a Community Resource for Environmental Information. This electronic discussion explored the opportunities for libraries to serve as a key source of environmental information. Using the power of the Internet, hundreds of librarians, citizens and members of communities, states and local and national organizations discussed how libraries and online resources can be strengthened in order to expand the citizen and community access to local, state and national environmental resources.

National Dialogues are a part of Information Renaissance's Network Democracy program, that seek to expand opportunities for education and public participation in governmental activities through the use of the Internet.
