HOW TO MAKE A BOOK AND JOURNAL REQUEST

This web site contains the full list of book titles in the latest catalogue, plus a selection of the journal titles (see below). Many institutions on our existing list will have received a paper version of the catalogue, complete with a request form.

If your institution has not received a paper copy, you may still be able to request materials directly from this web site. To do so, the Chief Librarian or Head of Department may

1) Contact Dr Owen White, owen.white@sympatico.ca , with a short introductory note to establish credentials, so that
2) A list of the desired titles (catalogue numbers only) may then be sent to Dr White, to be added to our latest official requests. The following easy-to-follow instructions are adapted from the print version of the catalogue:

To request each book, make a note of the relevant number on letterhead (or list the number in your e-mail message, as established above) and send your request to Toronto. Note that the original deadline was December 1st 2001. Some less-common titles have now been assigned, but many titles are still available as of August 2002, including many journals (see below). Be sure to include the address to which they should be sent, stating any special instructions to be followed (e.g., key phrases for parcels, such as "Educational Materials, Tax-Exempt", etc). Please list the numbers corresponding to your 1-10 top-priority choices along the special line on the response form. In many cases only one copy of each title is available, but we will do our best to meet all requests. NOTE: you may request as many titles as you wish, in addition to the "Top 10": so please indicate all titles of interest.

The New Catalogue

The total number of book titles included in AGID CANADA Catalogue "01/1" is 1,638. In addition to the 1,638 "active" titles, the AGID database contains 825 currently out-of-stock titles, for a total of 2,463. Many of the book titles are part of special-publication series of professional societies, such as Min.Soc.Canada, Geol.Soc.America, and this is emphasized in the print version of the catalogue, to aid librarians intent in filling gaps in their collections.

Note that it is not practical to incorporate anything like the complete AGID CANADA stock in one catalogue. Some topics, such as rock mechanics and engineering geology, are better-represented than the catalogue suggests, and enquiries on specific themes are welcome. 222 titles were recently assigned and shipped, mostly in the twin themes of rock mechanics and Arctic studies. Note also that, because many books cover more than one discipline, and each title appears only once to save space, the careful reader will often find it necessary to scan two or more categories, perhaps including the Introductory Geological Texts, to ensure that all relevant titles are located.

Journals

This list of technical journals is short compared to the catalogue of books and monographs, but in the "real world" of the AGID CANADA warehouse the journals comprise a major proportion of both the volume and mass of our holdings!
