Thanks to a loan from the Department of Special Collections of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Libraries, publications showcasing recent research on efficient water resource management are available from Digital Scholarship @ UNLV.

Using limited water resources wisely is of particular importance in the Intermountain West; these publications describe best practices and the impacts of human population growth on water resources in this geographic region.
