Brake Pad Partnership - Technical Reference Library
The Brake Pad Partnership Technical Reference Library is a collection of literature relevant to the fate, transport, and environmental importance of copper in vehicle brake pads. The collection is designed to be a resources for the Brake Pad Partnership (BPP) Steering Committee, other Partnership stakeholders, technical experts assisting the Brake Pad Partnership, and other professionals interested in the relationship of vehicle-related pollutant releases and surface water quality.
The Brake Pad Partnership Technical Reference Library is a special collection within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9 Library. The U.S. EPA Region 9 Library is located in the U.S. EPA offices at 75 Hawthorne Street in San Francisco, California. The library is open to the public, but borrowing privileges are generally limited to U.S. EPA staff, other libraries, and local businesses with established borrowing arrangements. Most of the materials in the collection are available in research libraries or on the Internet. For assistance in obtaining materials please contact the U.S. EPA Region 9 Library. The Library staff are happy to assist you.
To facilitate information access for persons not near the collection's physical location in San Francisco, the collection is cataloged online, with collection reference number, bibliographic citation, abstracts, publication availability on the Internet, and keywords for each item. The How to use the Catalog page explains how to search the catalog and describes the format for each entry.
The collection contains materials assembled by a preliminary literature review conducted in 2002. The current collection is intended to be a starting point for research, rather than a comprehensive collection of all relevant literature. The Brake Pad Partnership continues to seek relevant literature items—if you have recommendations, please e-mail your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Funding for the original development of this literature collection was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the San Francisco Estuary Project, and the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association.
