The standard command is:

  # blkid

The blkid command needs root since by default it (annoyingly) caches
information in /etc/blkid.tab.  (Cache info should go into /var/cache.)

You can use ls (as a normal user) to poke around in the /dev/disk/
filesystem to get the information directly.

  $ ls -log /dev/disk/by-*
