Abstract This notebook represents the first attempt by EPA's Office of Toxic Substances (OTS) to identify and assess both its scientific/technical information requirements and major information resources containing pertinent data. OTS' information requirements are expressed in terms of data categories and subcategories which are properly defined and classified. These data categories and subcategories are matched against a total of 700 computerized data bases and manual information resources in a series of matrices indicating where information may be available. Furthermore, these 700 information resources are evaluated by using a series of search and system attributes in a series of matrices depicting the search and system capabilities for many of these resources. Also included in this information assessment are the computer models that OTS has developed for predicting physical/chemical properties or for assessing chemical fate and environmental and human exposure. The major objective of this effort is to evaluate the adequacy of existing information resources and to identify major information gaps. As information requirements and information resources capabilities change, this Notebook will be periodically updated to reflect these changes.
