Geology: Research Help

Welcome to the Geology Research Guide!

The purpose of this guide is to support the Geology program in the Geosciences section of SUU's Department of Physical Science. Here you will find resources related as closely as possible to the subject of Geology aimed at supporting research in that field.


Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content related to Geology:

Other Online Resources

Periodicals and Serials

Although many of the journals and annuals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, sometimes a print copy is the only way to go. Below is a list of periodicals and serials we have in print and electronic formats. (Note: Print copies of periodicals are housed in the collapsible shelves on the first level, organized alphabetically by title, whereas serials are in the book shelves, organized by call number, like books).

Books and Ebooks

At Sherratt Library we use the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system to organize the items on our shelves. These call "numbers"  (they're really letters)  on the spines are used for most of our items, including print books and ebooks. Below is a list of call numbers that relate to Geology (browsing these sections in the shelves on the 2nd level or in Reference on the 1st level, can reveal resources you never even knew you needed)!
