About Us

NOAA Sea 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 National Sea Grant College Program.

The Digital Collection

The NSGL provides access to over 26,000 electronic Sea Grant documents via the online publications catalog. 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 54,000 Sea Grant-funded 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 of documents.

Our Services

While many of our documents are available electronically, if a digital copy is unavailable or a hardcopy loan is preferred, we will provide a one-month loan. Please contact us directly or use the interlibrary loan service at your local public or university library. Reference, online search services, and Ask-a-Librarian are also provided. All services are provided free of charge.
