EPA report number: General info

Most EPA documents are given a report number such as: EPA/600/2-86/066

The number given above represents report series 600/2, published in 1986, report number 66. Most of the time, in order to find an EPA report it is necessary to have the SuDoc number. In general, certain report series are assigned to certain SuDoc numbers, as shown in the table below:

Report number SuDoc root number Series name
EPA-600/1 EP1.23/4 Environmental Health Effects Research Series
EPA-600/2 EP1.23/2 Environmental Protection Technology Series
EPA-600/3, EPA-660/3 EP1.23 Ecological Research Series
EPA-600/4 EP1.23/5 Environmental Monitoring Series
EPA-600/5 EP1.23/3 Socioeconomic Environmental Studies Series
EPA-600/7 EP1.23/8 Interagency Energy-Environmental Studies Series
EPA-600/8 EP1.89/2  EP1.23/9  
EPA-600/9 EP1.23/6 Miscellaneous Reports

Using the table, it is likely that report EPA/600/2-86/066, will have the SuDoc number EP1.23/2:600/2-86/066

But note:

  • There are more report series than just the 600 series given in the table above.
  • Some of the 600 series reports are NOT at EP1.23, but are in EP1.2 and other locations.
  • There are reports in EP1.23 that are not part of the 600 series.

If a patron has a SuDoc number, have them check both the paper and microfiche collections to see if Virginia Tech has the item. If the patron does not have the SuDoc number, search the GPO database by the report number, as described above, and convert the report number to a SuDoc number. Locations for EPA documents are:
