The Maine Geological Survey (MGS) provides the people and businesses of Maine with essential geologic information about the land where we live and work.
The Bibliography of Maine Geology collection lists publications from non-MGS sources that pertain to the geology of Maine. The availability of these documents varies, see below:
- Free PDFs - Files downloadable from non-MGS web sites.
- MGS Library - Printed items kept in the MGS in-house library that can be used by visiting the office. This collection does not circulate.
- MGS Digital Library - Digital versions of selected items not produced by MGS, but that can be viewed by visiting the office.
- For reference - MGS does not have printed or digital copies of these items. Citations from the MGS Bibliography of Maine Geology are listed for research purposes only.
Note: Many state documents are offered in PDF format. To view PDF documents, you will need the free Adobe Reader. If you need assistance, view our Maine government PDF Help page or contact the contributing Maine State agency via the link on the left sidebar under “Links”.
