More on Water Resources Center Archives

The Berkeley Graduate has an article on the Water Resources Center Archives. The article describes the wealth of information there. It’s one of the few water libraries anywhere, but it’s especially valuable in California, where water has always been a big issue.

The article points out that WRCA’s book holdings are searchable through Melvyl and that WRCA has other worthwhile materials, such as archives (use the finding aids to see what they have), online papers in their own section of UC’s eScholarship repository, and a lecture series (past programs are viewable online).

Now, the university wants to save a few bucks by closing the library and merging it with another UC library. Read the Berkeley Graduate article and Peter Gleick’s Destroying our libraries: a water story to learn what you can do to help.
