Hazardous Substance Research Bibliography
Compiled by Douglas Bates and Nancy H. Donoghue
Shortly after the Hazardous Substance Research Center (HSRC) was established
at Kansas State University, Farrell Library, also at K-State, was designated
as the repository for materials produced by the HSRC. The Documents Librarian
at Farrell Library was given the task of collecting these materials and
making them available to the public. It was also decided that the Documents
Librarian would collect other relevant materials not produced by the HSRC,
such as EPA Reports, State documents, NTIS Documents, etc.
The material that comes through the Documents unit and appears in this bibliography is treated in one of three ways:
Access to the Material
If you can come to the library personally, check the last line of the bibliography entry for the call number of the item. If the last line says "See OPAC" then that item has been added to the main collection and the On-Line Public Access Catalog called "LYNX" should be consulted for a call number to the item. If the last line has a number like "31", then that document is kept near the Documents office and a member of the Documents staff may be consulted for assistance. All other numbers are Superintendent of Documents numbers and the items can be found in the documents collection of the Farrell Library.
Remote Access to the Collection
For those outside the Manhattan area who cannot visit the Library personally, items from the bibliography should be accessed through an Inter-Library Loan request using the information given in the bibliography. This can be done by visiting a local library and directing the request to Farrell Library, Kansas State University.
The bibliography is updated regularly as new items are added to the collection. New editions of the bibliography will be issued periodically. Any suggestions to improve this bibliography would be greatly appreciated. Questions and suggestions should be directed to:Diana Farmer
