Abstract: An important component of the Arkansas Water Resources Center (AWRC) mission is the transfer of water resources information to the user community within Arkansas and the region including researchers, resource planners and managers, environmental consultants, environmental advocacy entities, lawyers, and the general public. This is generally accomplished in four primary modes: 1) an annual water resources conference 2)biannual newsletters, 3) distribution of AWRC library materials on request, and 4) maintenance of the AWRC WEB site including a significant portion of the library which has been converted to electronic format. This project will continue the active information transfer that the AWRC has established and maintained since its inception in 1964.
