The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has launched a new online resource, the Geological Surveys Database, to support the public discovery of a critical source of reliable geoscience information. This new database provides a state-of-the-art portal for decision makers and others to search and discover state geological survey publications and U.S. Geological Survey factsheets.
Big milestone today at AGI as our flagship program, GeoRef, reaches 4 million references! Our Communications Intern, Railey, talked with AGI's Director of Information Services, Sharon Tahirkheli, about how GeoRef works. How exactly do 4 million geoscience articles, maps, books, and abstracts make it into our database? Listen to find out. Learn more at www.georef.org.

Geologic guidebooks tell stories about the history of our continent's beautiful natural landscapes, but to date they have not been easily obtained by today's researchers. To facilitate greater access to these guidebooks, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and the Geoscience Information Society (GSIS) have jointly launched a free database, which catalogs decades of these guidebooks from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
2015 represents the bicentenary of the William Smith Map, one of the most important geologic maps ever created and the first national geologic map ever produced. To celebrate, GeoRef, the world's largest geoscience reference database is adding approximately 25,000 map references.
