The Information Retrieval Services Branch of the Office of Solid Waste Management Programs (OSWMP) performs one of the three functions of the Technical Information Staff. The primary mission of this branch is to fulfill the objectives of the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1965 related to collecting and disseminating the results of technological developments published throughout the world in the field of solid waste management. The Branch is composed of two sections: the Solid Waste Information Retrieval System (SWIRS) Section, with data bank holdings of approximately 18,000 items (as of September 1972), and the Library Section. The SWIRS Section supports the legislative and EPA objective of making solid waste management information widely available; its holdings are supplemented by those of the Library Section. The users, data base, facilities, and services of these two sections are described in this report.
