The Online Library System (OLS) is a computerized list of bibliographic
citations compiled by the EPA library network. EPA provides this menu-
driven, user-friendly system at no cost to support public access to
environmental information. The only charges that will be incurred through
use of the system are telecommunications charges. OLS includes several
related databases that can be used to locate books, reports, articles, and
information on a variety of topics. The material in OLS is updated every two
weeks, and can be searched by numerous access points, such as title, author,
and keyword. NOTE: TELEPHONE CHARGES. EPA cannot be responsible
for any telephone charges incurred by non-EPA users. It is the user's
responsibility to release the telephone line connection.
