In addition to the geosciences literature resources provided by our subscription to GeoRef (read more about GeoRef below), the Earth Science Collection provides full text access to more than 650 journals with coverage as early as 1933. Please share feedback about this database with our Digital Services Librarian. Access to subscription content is for BLM users only.

Encyclopedia of Life
The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) provides natural history and pictures of "all species known to science."  EOL began in 2007 with the bold idea to provide “a webpage for every species."

GeoRef
This database, established by the American Geological Institute (AGI) in 1966, provides access to the geoscience literature of the world. GeoRef is the most comprehensive AGI database in the geosciences and continues to grow by more than 100,000 references a year. The database contains over 3 million references to geoscience journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports, and theses. Access to subscription content is for BLM users only.

Google Scholar
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.

Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

HeinOnline
HeinOnline has several major legal and government document library collections of special interest to BLM users, including the Law Journal Library, the Federal Register, Treaties and Agreements, and U.S. Federal Agency Documents, Decisions, and Appeals. The American Indian Law Collection contains a Dept. of the Interior Collection, which includes the annual "Decisions of the Department of the Interior" volumes.

Also, the libraries in HeinOnline provide comprehensive coverage from the inception of each publication, something no other online publisher currently offers. Access to subscription content is for BLM/DOI users only.
