Appeared in Choice on 2003-04-01:
Gottlieb intends that this work help researchers find the proper technology to solve environmental problems. Internet resources, which make up the majority of the citations, are grouped into four categories--control, remediation, assessment, and prevention. The citations summarize what is available on the Web site, list main resources offered, and give contact information. The premise is interesting--making it possible to locate the most important element of a particular Web site without having to wade through the site itself. The work's strongest element is its gathering many important, carefully studied Internet resources in one useful source. Since Web sites are revamped or discontinued with such speed, this work will become obsolete very quickly. Although it is more difficult to find the information, OCLC's WorldCat also abstracts most of the sites included and provides some of the same information. The shelf life of this work coupled with its high price will make it most useful to those libraries with very large environmental studies and environmental engineering programs. ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
