Policy Regarding Paper Downloads

The society has decided to make Fall Field Conference guidebook papers available for free download. Non members will have access to all but the most recent guidebook papers. Members will have access to all papers. This is in keeping with our mission of promoting interest, research, and cooperation regarding geology in New Mexico. However, guidebook sales represent a significant proportion of the societies' operating budget. Therefore, only research papers will be made available for download. Road logs, mini-papers, maps, stratigraphic charts, and other selected content will remain available only in the printed guidebooks. This will encourage researchers to purchase the printed guidebooks, which are essential references for geologic research in New Mexico and surrounding areas.

The NMGS executive committee has decided that free downloads from our guidebooks will be made available to non-members when guidebooks are two years old.
