GEOUM

Working Group of the Libraries for Earth and Environmental Sciences

This working group exists since 1995 as an informal association for mutual support and cooperation. GEOUM originated from an initiative of the geologic state offices but in the meantime it adresses all libraries with a focus on Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Regular meetings at conferences and a moderated mailing list are the basis for cooperation.

If you would like to join the mailing list, please contact Roland Bertelmann.
