Geology Collection

Geology Collection

As of May 21, 2018, the Geology Library, formerly located in 601 Schermerhorn, will be closed permanently in order to convert the space into the new Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics. Library services (including the reserves collection) supporting students, faculty, and researchers will be relocated to the Science & Engineering Library in the Northwest Corner Building. Print materials from the Geology collection will be available by request from the library catalog. The Geology Library's collection is particularly strong in the areas of traditional terrestrial geology. Extensive collections of state and foreign geological surveys and societies go back to the 18th century.

Services for Lamont Users

Library services supporting LDEO students, faculty and researchers will continue from the Morningside campus with a courier service delivering library materials to a pickup shelf located in room 106 Geoscience (DEES Office) on the Lamont campus. The courier service will deliver on Tuesdays and Fridays. Library materials may also be returned via a drop-off box in the same location. For further details click here.

Lamont-Doherty Open Access Resolution

As of March 1, 2011, the Lamont-Doherty open access resolution requires all Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory researchers to deposit their scholarly publications into an open access repository. Any article submitted after that date that is subsequently published must be deposited in either the final version or the final post-review version.
