Many apologies for cross-postings

For those of you following the EPA library closings, I emailed a note to 
the Union of Concerned Scientists because of  their presentation to
a Congressional hearing concerning these closings and other issues.

Please see the response below and am hoping that fellow librarians will 
add to the list at the ALA wiki
that is mentioned in the UCS response.

Hi Pat,
Thanks for your interest in opposing the EPA library closures.  UCS has 
been very active on this issue.  The Government Accountability Office 
has been investigating the closures for a report at the request of 
members of Congress, and I believe the report should be coming out 
soon.  In addition, I thought you might be interested in this as a 
librarian - ALA has started a webpage on federal library closures that 
anyone can edit.  The page is located at 
It will be interesting to see whether this becomes widely-used.

We appreciate your dedication to defending science from political
