A cooperative venture between Geoscience Australia and the American Geological Institute, AusGeoRef is a subset of the GeoRef database published by the American Geological Institute. AusGeoRef is regularly updated with references to Australian geoscience literature provided by Geoscience Australia. AusGeoRef now includes more than 170,000 bibliographic references on Australia - with more than 74,000 references incorporated from the former Australian Earth Sciences Information Service (AESIS), which ceased updating in 2001. The references are drawn from the journal literature, meeting proceedings and abstracts, books, reports and maps. The database is updated on a weekly basis.

References contain complete bibliographic information and URLs for documents published on the web and includes thorough indexing based on the controlled vocabulary found in the GeoRef Thesaurus. Specific geographic locations are listed as place names along with latitude and longitude.
