The collection of documents about Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in Bloomington Indiana and Monroe County spans the early 1980's to the early 2000's. In 2013, the Wells Library and the Monroe County Public Library merged their collections in the 110 archival boxes now safely housed in the ALF.
Update! Our finding aid is still incomplete, but it's available and more and more of it will be added each week.

MCPL put together this information package no earlier than 1994. It is a large file of articles and documents.

Indiana University does not regularly receive current information, but some things are available from the IDEM though their Virtual File Cabinet. Clicking on the site names below will give you documents related to that site, but in no particular order and with no regard to subject matter. Also, you may only retrieve 500 results at a time.
To narrow your search, go to the main Virtual File Cabinet Document Search and put the Facility ID into the "Full Text Search" box. Then, you may choose a range of dates, program, and/or document type. Again, the results will be in no particular order, but you can copy the results into a spreadsheet to sort them.
