ALEXANDRIA, VA — The
GeoRef database, published by the American Geological Institute is now
available via the Internet Database Service (IDS) from Cambridge Scientific
Abstracts. The database, established in 1966, provides access to
the geoscience literature of the world. GeoRef is the most comprehensive
database in the geosciences with over 2.2 million references to geoscience
journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports and theses published

Geological Survey). GeoRef continues to grow by more than 70,000 references
