Help for finding USGS publications

Finding USGS Publications

Many reports are available online and searchable via the USGS  Publications Warehouse.Choose the Advanced Search because you can search by series name and/or number.

This Library receives many publications from the USGS, however you cannot find all of them listed individually in OneSearch by author or paper title, especially older publications. If you can't find a title by searching the OneSearch, you can try this mehtod: determine the series and report number and then use the table to identify a call number.These are the most commonly used series that we own.
