BLM Library: Information Within Reach

Please update your bookmarks and visit our new site at

The Resource Inventory Notes was published from 1976 through 1979. Topics range from statistical sampling of precision and probability to interpretation of statistical information using the Freese's Chi-Square Test of Accuracy to methods for making range condition surveys that will aid field staff in their work. This series is no longer in print. Copies may be requested from the BLM Library at or 303-236-6650. Dr. Tim Gregoire at Yale University has scanned all of the BLM Resource Inventory Notes and Resources Evaluation Newsletters and has made them available on the web in .pdf format. See:
