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 may1) Contact Dr Owen White, firstname.lastname@example.org , with a short introductory note to establish credentials, so that
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.
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.
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!
Journals and special publications in stock in July 2001 included the following 32 titles: holdings vary from a 30-40 years' sequence of some periodicals to only a few issues of others. Several sets (runs) are available for journals marked with an asterisk (*).American Association of Petroleum Geologists Bulletin
The above journals are offered to recipients of the AGID CANADA catalogue on the understanding that special arrangements may be required for shipment of serials, lengthy runs of which may weigh hundreds of kilograms, or even more.
