Geological Field Trip Guidebooks
Field trip guidebooks:
- Are a significant contribution to geoscience literature
- Are often the most current or only synopsis of an area's geology
- Allow a reader to replicate the trip through a road log or GPS stop locations
- Are frequently published as part of a series, e.g., Oklahoma Geological Survey Guide book
Search in Discover Local for a guidebook by:
- series name
OU Geology/Geophysics Theses and Dissertations
- OU geology and geophysics theses and dissertations are shelved alphabetically by author's last name in the Youngblood Energy Library. You do not need a call number.
- Don't know the author's name? Search the library catalog, Discover Local, by title or subject. You can limit your search to: Material Type: Dissertations.
- Another good source is the Youngblood Library thesis/dissertation keyword database with lots of keywords assigned to each thesis/dissertation. You can also search this database by advisor name.
- PhD dissertations are available in electronic format (full-text) through the library catalog, Discover Local, or through SHAREOK, the OU/OSU institutional repository.
