Pitt has many of the publications-- including maps and reports-- of the Geological Survey of Pennsylvania. Some are in Hillman, some in Storage, some in the Engineering Library, and some at the Bradford and Johnstown campuses.

There is some irregularity in the records regarding the publishing agency--sometimes they seem to be produced by the Geological Survey of Pennsylvania, sometimes by Pennsylvania Geological Survey, sometimes by Pennsylvania Bureau of Topographic and Geologic survey.

Start your search in PITTCat Classic and select "Keyword Search".  Depending on what you're looking for, you may want to limit your search by date. To do this, enter the beginning year, click the radio button for range, and enter the end year. Be sure to click the Set Search Limits button.


In the first search box, enter the terms geologic? survey pennsylvania. Leave "all of these" in the drop down menu. 

In the next line enter map? report? and  set the dropdown to "any of these" and run the search.
