3.4 The Internet

Libraries

A number of library catalogues are available on the Web. Checking the availability of books and resource materials online can save you a lot of time.

Universities

By searching the staff directories of universities’ web sites, you can find experts involved in contaminant research, environmental science, chemistry, ecotoxicology, and human health issues. Call or e-mail them; they may be willing to help or to point you to someone who can.

Environmental groups

Most (too many to list) environmental groups have a Web presence. Search for them under their names or acronyms, or consult directories compiled by provincial environmental networks. See Appendix H for the web site addresses of some groups.
