"State of U.S. Coral Reefs" Reports for Libraries, Labs

Greetings all,

In August 2005, NOAA announced the availability of a report entitled: 
/The State of Coral Reef Ecosystems of the United States and Pacific 
Freely Associated States: 2005/.  This report represents an initial 
effort to determine the present condition of shallow water coral reef 
ecosystems based on quantitative results of assessment and monitoring 
activities conducted by Federal, State, Territory, Commonwealth, 
non-governmental, private, and academic partners. Production of the 
report was led by NOAA in close collaboration with teams of experts that 
authored chapters on the condition of coral reef ecosystems in each of 
14 jurisdictions.  PDFs of the report chapters are available for free 
download from: 

I'm writing to request your assistance in placing the remaining printed 
copies of the report in University libraries and marine labs, where they 
can be accessed by many.  If you know of an academic library or marine 
lab that would like a copy of the report, please ask them to send a 
formal request for the printed report to CoralReport2005 at noaa.gov so 
that we can make the information as widely available as possible.

Thank you!
