All Databases A-Z
Until 1994, the database was produced by the United States Geological Survey, when it was generally known as Selected Water Resources Abstracts. Since that time, Water Resources Abstracts has been produced by Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, which broadened the scope by including more material published outside the U.S.A. This database, which concentrates on water supply and water treatment, complements the Aquatic Sciences & Fisheries Abstracts database, ASFA, where there is greater coverage of the marine environment and biological material.

Note: Access now includes Book Citation Index, Conference Proceedings Citation Index (1994-present), Current Chemical Reactions (1994-present), and Index Chemicus (1994-present)
Includes: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-EXPANDED), 1900-present; Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), 1956-present; Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A & HCI), 1975-present.
When selecting artists for inclusion in this publication, consideration is given to works in public collections, commissioned works, and exhibitions of an international, national, and wide regional scope in noncommercial galleries and museums. Inclusion of entrants other than artists is based on position and experience in the art world.
