Other Info: The collection contains books, historical and current journals, hard-copy technical reports, reports on microfiche and microfilm, audio cassettes, and CD-ROMs. Because it is a central library for NOAA, a multi-faceted agency, the collection is also multi-faceted and contains works on meteorology, climatology, oceanography, marine chemistry, marine biology, marine fisheries, remote sensing, and ecology. The public may use the library and make copies, but may not remove the material from the library except on interlibrary loan basis. The library has been a selective government depository for GPO publications since September 1993.
