Abstract

The Wisconsin Water Resources Institute's (WRI) information and technology transfer responsibilities are three-fold: to promote and coordinate water resources research; to enhance educational capability through training and public service; and to provide information to government agencies, the scientific community, the private sector, and the general public. Institute staff believe an efficient system of water information retrieval and dissemination is vital for researchers and the general public to make informed decisions on water policy and promulgate intelligent water-related regulations. The Water Resources Institute assists researchers and the general public with their information needs by maintaining a Web Site for the dissemination of water resources information; by providing a library of water-related printed and electronic materials and by offering library reference services to interested individuals; by sponsoring conferences; and by publishing and distributing technical reports, proceedings, journal articles, and a monthly listing of library acquisitions and new water-related web sites.
