Grant encourages the wise stewardship of our marine resources
through research, education, outreach, and technology transfer. The NSGL is committed to providing easy access to the wealth
of information generated by the Sea Grant Program.
The Digital Collection
The NSGL provides access to over 15,000 electronic Sea Grant documents via the publications database. From the search results page you may link directly to these digital documents, which are mostly in pdf and html formats. Another means of accessing many Sea Grant digital documents is through the Digital Libraries series, where patrons have the option of browsing a list of subject-related titles.
The Print Collection
The print collection consists of over 36,000 titles, including
the following types of documents: journal reprints, books, technical
reports, maps, proceedings, newsletters, advisory reports, handbooks,
curriculum guides, videos, CD-Roms, computer programs and other miscellaneous types
Many of our documents are available electronically, but if a digital copy is unavailable or a hardcopy loan is preferred, we will provide a one-month loan.
Reference, online search services, and Ask
a Librarian are also provided. All of our services are provided
free of charge.
