Comments:
The Denver Earth Resources Library is a non-profit Colorado Corporation, and it is supported through membership fees, hourly/day rate fees, research fees, print charges, private contributions, and foundation gifts and grants. The Library is ten years old and continues to expand its geographic and geologic coverage and improve its services each year. The Library is primarily a self-service study and data-gathering center, but the staff will pull data and do geo-tech-type work for clients.

Comments:
The USGS Field Records Library is an archival collection of materials generated by Survey scientists during project work. Most of the collection dates from after the establishment of the USGS in 1879, although the collection includes earlier materials from the exploration surveys of the 1870s. The archives are organized by project, and are catalogued under the author or field-party chief, with additional indexing by geographic location, subjects, coauthors, or project assistants, and related USGS publications. Materials in the collection include, but are not limited to, geologic field notes, field sketches, field maps, compilation maps, plane-table sheets, aerial photos (many with geologic annotations), analysis reports, stratigraphic logs, columns, and cross-sections, drafts of published as well as unpublished reports and maps, and project-related correspondence. The Field Records Library is open to the public and visitors are welcome. Requests can also be made by letter, telephone, or e-mail. Most materials relate to the project work done in the contiguous United States. For material relating to Alaska, contact the USGS, Mineral Resource Surveys-Alaska Section, 4200 University Drive, Anchorage, Alaska 99508-4667; telephone (907) 786-7007.
