II. Collections of Geological Data

  • Library


    CGS has specially established a geology library to collect and maintain geological data. Not only can our library collections be dated back to the periods of Bureau of Productive Industries, Government-General of Taiwan (Japanese domination) and Taiwan Provincial Central Geological Survey, but also we have exchanged hundreds of books and periodicals with domestic and foreign organizations and agencies in the field. We are the country’s No.1 library with respect to the volume of geological data.
