Stanford University Libraries:
Two of the SUL/AIR Libraries will probably meet most of the information needs for this class:
Maps of Library Locations, Lists of Library Hours and Reserve Lists for most Stanford Libraries are available.
Use SearchWorks, Stanford's Web-based Catalog, to find the location of books, journals, maps, data files, and technical reports.
Alternatively, you might like to browse the library shelves in person. Water-related information can be found in the following call number ranges:
Encyclopedias and Print Resources:
The following titles provide general information about water resources and offer references to more specific items.
Encyclopedia of Water Science: (BranRef, GB655 E53 2003)
Encyclopedia of Hydrology and Water Resources (BranRef, QE501 .E56 V.22)
Ground-water Resources of the United States (Branner Stacks, GB1015 .G76 1983)
(A little outdated, but good for basic information about groundwater and aquifers throughout the U.S.).
Survey of Potentially High Yield Aquifers Within the Contiguous United States (Branner Stacks, GB1015 .F85 1975)
(Also, a little outdated, but contains basic information about aquifer thickness).
Water Encyclopedia: (BranRef, TD345 .L393 2005) A five volume set with the following titles:
Indexes will lead you to journal articles, papers in conference proceedings, and technical reports. Access through library’s “Databases A-Z” page. Important indexes water information include:
Information about indexes: From 1967 through 1993 Selected Water Resources (SWRA) was produced by USGS; it includes water-related U.S. government documents, as well as the majority of state water documents. In 1994, USGS cancelled production of SWRA, and it is now available on the internet as WRSIC. The SWRA was reborn at Cambridge Scientfic as Water Resources Abstracts (WRA), but with a changed coverage, but with the old file intact. GeoRef includes all USGS publications, as well as the state survey publications no longer covered in WRA.
