Publications Pipeline Committee

The function of the Publication Pipeline Committee is to collect geoscience books and journals from those who no longer need them and to forward these resources to overseas universities and libraries. Most of the material distributed is from retired and deceased geoscientists and downsized company libraries. The books and journals are cataloged, boxed, stored and distributed when a need for them is identified. These books and journals are sent to overseas universities and other libraries that require these resources with the assistance of companies with overseas operations. When necessary, the committee applies to the AAPG Foundation for funding to ship these materials.
