Title
Public libraries and the question about the environment
Source
Library review. 42(1993) no.4, S.5-13
Year
1993
Abstract
Investigates whether public libraries are capable of providing a basic science enquiry service. Examines the range of environmental enquiries handled by 5 participating libraries as part of their everyday business. During the study some 110 detailed enquirues were recorded: less than 20% of these concerned local environmental questions; the rest related to environmental queries at the national or global level. The 3 most popular topics were: pollution, names and addresses of environmental organizations and people and recycling. Enquirers were evenly split between school attenders and adults. Most of the enquiries could be answered by making use of the resources already available in the library; no more than 10% had to be referred elsewhere for an answer
