AGI is a premier provider of comprehensive, reliable and timely geoscience information for geoscientists, public policymakers, educators, the public, industry, the media, and students.


GeoRef is the premier bibliographic database for the Earth Sciences. An indispensible tool for researchers and students alike, GeoRef lets you understand the entire historical record of research on any topic in the geosciences.

Online Databases

AGI hosts a number of both free and subscription-based online databases. GeoRef and its associated thematic databases such as AusGeoRef and CanGeoRef are available for subscription, while the GeoRef Previews Database freely allows a sneak peek at new articles that are working their way into GeoRef.

Glossary of Geology

The Glossary of Geology is the definitive reference for students and professionals in the geosciences. With over 40,000 terms and definition, the Glossary is built on the published geoscience literature to ensure that the definition is precise and accepted by the community. The Glossary of Geology, now in its revised Fifth Edition, is available in Print, ebook, and as an App for iOS.

Open Geoscience Information Collections

AGI maintains several open content collections (publications, images) where the content is either available directly on the website or through a link to the originator of the data.
