Core services such as interlibrary loans, cataloging, online literature searches, quick and extensive reference/research requests (including business research, journal articles, etc.) will continue to be handled by the Andrew W. Breidenbach Environmental Research Center (AWBERC) located in Cincinnati, OH (also referred to as the CINN Library). All requests for these core services should be submitted to the Region 4 Librarian or directly to the Cincinnati Library:
