a. World Wide Web
Annual subscriptions to access GeoRef on the World Wide
Web are available from several vendors with subscription rates determined by the type and size of the subscribing organization. Subscribers are classified as academic, government/non-profit, or commercial. Tiered pricing for academic institutions is based on the total number of student majors (including both graduate and undergraduate majors) and faculty in the geoscience / earth science departments.
Subscription rates for government, non-profit, and commercial organizations are scaled to the size of the organization.
