The Geological Surveys Database includes more than 20,000 publications from participating state geological surveys, and factsheets from the USGS. The database provides full-text searching of all of its publications. This means that users can not only search metadata fields (i.e., title, author, notes, etc.), but also search against the entire text of the publications in the database. While the full-text information is searchable, it is not downloadable. Publications are not distributed directly, but links are provided where available. (AGI)
