New Toolkit Helps Librarians Navigate EPA Site
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Web Ambassador Program is offering a new toolkit and training sessions to help educate librarians about use of its extensive Web site. Comprising more than 300 areas and over one million pages of HTML text and PDF files, the EPA Web site contains a vast amount of information of value to many different audiences, from schoolchildren to doctoral-level environmental researchers.
The new toolkit includes a booklet that explains aspects of the EPA Web domain that are particularly relevant to librarians and a color poster of the EPA home page that highlights some of the site’s key navigational and content features. The material complements information presented to librarians through the program’s hands-on train-the-trainer sessions.
