Technical Reports

Technical reports may be listed in one or more of these databases:

The majority of the USGS Open-file reports are listed in SOCRATES; check by author and title. If not found, try GEOREF or the Search Publications of the USGS.

For reports produced in the Stanford School of Earth Sciences, as well as California Division of Mines, Geological Survey of Canada and other state and provincial open-file reports search first in SOCRATES. These reports can be searched by author, title, and performing organization. If the only information you have is the technical report number, try consulting the NTIS Database or one of the other sources listed above. If you don't find the report that you need, fill in a Document Delivery Online Request Form.

Technical reports are acquired in a wide variety of formats: maps, bound volumes, microfiche, videotape, etc. All technical reports may be borrowed for 28 days (graduate students and faculty borrow items by the quarter). Items are subject to recall after the initial seven days if needed by another borrower or immediately when needed for course reserve. Items not needed by another borrower may be renewed.

Reports owned by the Branner Library are shelved in the library according to the table below. For further help ask at the Reference Desk.
