Ninth Atmospheric Science Librarians International Conference: Atmospheric Sciences Libraries and Their Importance for Patrons


Alternative Resources for Meteorological Research

Linda Musser, Librarian, Penn State Univ., State College, PA

Atmospheric science libraries are valuable to patrons for several reasons; they provide access to specialized tools such as "Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts (MGA)"; they contain high concentrations of relevant works such as "WMO publications"; and they are managed by professionals with extensive knowledge of atmospheric science resources as well as other tools of librarianship. It is via this last aspect; the knowledge and awareness of non-meteorological resources; that atmospheric science librarians can sometimes provide the most assistance to our users. This talk will highlight some non-meteorological and non-scientific resources that can be useful in meteorological research. .
