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, resources planners and managers, environmental consultants, environmental advocacy entities, lawyers, and the general public. The AWRC accomplishes this in four primary modes including 1) an annual water resources conference; 2)distribution of AWRC library materials on request; 3) electronic media including maintenance of the AWRC Website including a significant portion of the library which has been converted to electronic format and monthly email newsletters; 4) social media including Facebook and Twitter.
