Hello and welcome to CoreFacts, where we're always short on time and big on science. I'm Steve Sobieszczyk. Today we have a question about one of the USGS disciplines.

Does the Biological Resources Discipline also have science libraries?

Yes. Biologic Resources Discipline science libraries are located at many of our Science Centers. Holdings and services at each library tend to reflect the center's research specialties as well as the realization that high-quality science and biological resource management depend upon reliable access to a wide variety of information. The 3 regional offices are located, for the Western Region, in Seattle, Washington, for the Central Region, in Denver, Colorado, and for the Eastern Region, in Kearneysville, West Virginia. For the locations of all our Biological Resource Science Centers browse over to

And now you know. Join us every weekday for a new CoreFact. If you have a question you think we should answer on the air, email it to us at or leave us a voicemail at 703-648-5600; long distance fees do apply.
