EPA SCIENTISTS PROTEST LIBRARY CLOSURES — Loss
of Access to Collections Will Hamper Emergency Response and Research
Washington, DC — In an extraordinary letter of
protest, representatives for 10,000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
scientists are asking Congress to stop the Bush administration from closing the
agency’s network of technical research libraries. The EPA scientists,
representing more than half of the total agency workforce, contend thousands of
scientific studies are being put out of reach, hindering emergency
preparedness, anti-pollution enforcement and long-term research, according to
the letter released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility
