The Catalogue of major collections 270 KB pdf describes most of the major or significant records collections held in the National Geological Records Centre (NGRC) and gives details of both their physical and digital extent. It also provides links to associated online metadata, databases and other resources.
However, it is not a comprehensive catalogue of all the collections in the Records Centre. The collections listed include those series that are either continuing to grow in extent as they support and record BGS core activities, or those where the physical records are accessed on a regular basis. It does not include the many digital collections managed by NGRC unless there are analogue equivalents.
This document is being continuously updated and work is ongoing on cataloguing additional holdings in BGS Wallingford and BGS Edinburgh.
Records are available online and can be viewed in specific consultation areas or limited borrowing is allowed.
