Publications Pipeline Committee

The mission of the AAPG Publication Pipeline Committee is to improve geoscience education in developing countries by providing used geoscience books and periodicals at no cost to university libraries and other libraries that request them. Because of war or civil unrest, lack of funds, fire or other natural disasters, many overseas libraries are in need of basic library resources for use in higher education and training so important to continued development of their countries.

As North American geoscientists retire and companies consolidate, many libraries are available for donation, or they will be discarded.

The AAPG Publication Pipeline committee collects, inventories, boxes, stores, and sends donated geoscience periodicals and books to university libraries and other libraries overseas for use by students, faculty, and researchers. The committee raises funds to help with this work and we arrange shipment of publications overseas by companies as part of their shipments to areas where they operate. The AAPG Foundation receives donations of hardcopies only of periodicals, books, journals, and maps.

We are Geoscientists helping Geoscientists.
