Abstract

The main library collection of the Doc Fisher Geoscience Library consists of the accumulated books, journals and other materials acquired to meet the information needs of staff over the long history of the agency and its predecessors: the Bureau of Mineral Resources and the Australian Geological Survey Organisation, as well as agencies which have merged with these over the years, including AUSLIG. The majority of these are commercial publications, items received from comparable agencies in exchange for GA publications, or donations, including company reports. As well as traditional text-based materials, more recent formats (microfiche, VHS videotape, CDROM, DVD and web-based resources are held. All areas of research and operations of the organisation are supported by appropriate material available in, or accessible through arrangements made by the Library.

Lineage

Varies according to age and conditions of storage. Material on the ground floor of the Symonston building is in generally good condition. Back-runs of journals and other materials held in basement compactus suffer from lack of environmental controls (variable temperature, humidity, occasional infestation). Older paper items may be brittle, especially those with large plans, maps (some of which are stored as rolls or folded in envelopes).
