Literature Searches

The Library’s Literature Search service uses a combination of specialist geological literature search databases and expert literature searchers to produce focused lists of reference material on behalf of Fellows and Corporate Affiliates.

The main geological databases used are GeoRef and Geofacets. These are supplemented by other databases as required.

Requests for literature searches by Library staff should be submitted on the online request form. Results will be sent by e-mail, but paper printouts can be provided upon request. A Premium same-day service is also available upon request.

Items identified in search results can be provided by the Library on loan or Inter-Library loan. The Library can also provide photocopies or online access to many items.

Charges are based on membership type, time taken, search type, and printout costs (if applicable).
