The Water Environment Federation (WEF) launched an online library of papers presented at WEFTEC and WEF specialty conferences. Accessible on the WEF website, the papers are non-peer reviewed and range from the year 2000 to the present. Many of the conference proceedings are currently online and available either through download or on CD-Rom.
The conference proceedings library is another component to the recently revised website launched in November 2008. The revisions are intended to provide unparalleled and easy access to science, engineering, and technical practices for water-quality improvement. In addition to a new library of resources called "Access Water Knowledge," the revised site features a WaterBlog and Water Heroes profiles.
Phase II developments are currently underway and will include the addition of a more complete water library that will integrate WEF’s broad array of technical resources. Slated to launch in 2009, the site will feature a new look and search system that the organization says will allow users easy access to the latest in water-quality information, research, and news.
