AbstractIn its quest to promote the wise utilization and conservation of the United States' ocean and coastal resources, the National Sea Grant Program sponsors a vast array of research and educational ventures. Much of this is published, either in print or electronically. Locating this information can be an adventure even though several useful tools and a central depository exist. I examined one obvious tool, Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts, for the currency and consistency of its coverage of recent Sea Grant publications. Comparison of the last 1998 issue of Sea Grant Abstracts and the June-July 1999 Sea Grant Depository database electronic updates to ASFA raise some questions on how best to locate recent Sea Grant publications.
