Water, water, everywhere but not a drop to drink.

Although this statement is roughly from the poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the residents of Flint, Michigan, might have said the same thing just a few years ago.

The March/April, 2017, issue of Popular Science, is devoted to water, and there are graphics and some text that show the use of water, drinking and otherwise, around the world. The graphics are excellent for those of us who love visual learning.

This magazine/periodical is located in the magazine racks by the Circulation Desk and Café of the library. Additionally, the articles are available in the Academic Search Complete database in either HTML (retyped) format or the PDF format that resembles the printed page. This last format has the graphics and is in color. For a quick link to Academic Search Complete, click here.
