New maps added: November 24-30, 2014 from Italy to Papua New Guinea

We don’t get that many tourist maps at the Geology Library, but this week one of our new maps was a geomorphological tourist map of the central Appenines.

Rocks, Landscapes, National Parks of Queensland

We recently acquired several geological guides for the Rocks, Landscapes, and National Parks of Queensland, Australia.

Each guidebook gives the geological origins and episodes of its particular region and then groups the parks by similar geological features. For example, Central Queensland parks are organized by limestones, meta-sediments, violent volcanoes, granites, sandstone belts, and sunken basins. With sketches, photographs, maps, and walking tours, these guidebooks are useful for real hiking trips and for trips of the imagination for those of us who have never been to Australia but have cataloged hundreds of books about its geology.

Noosa National Park, Queensland, Australia:

Return from Oz

QE 344 A19

Ever wonder what was at call number QE 344 A19? Wonder no more! The Publication series of the Geological Survey of Queensland was cataloged at QE 344 A19. The QE represents the Library of Congress  Subject Geology, while the 344 is the geographical subdivision Queensland, Australia.

So now you may be wondering why you don’t see these publications in our stacks. It’s because we moved them into the Library Storage Facility (LSF). We recently received a massive gift of geological materials and have been madly processing, cataloging, and moving some materials in to the stacks and out to LSF to make room for even more books and maps.
