This project initially began as an in-house bibliographic database of our reprint collection in order to do away with
an ever-enlarging card index. Since then, the database project has grown so large that we wanted to make it
available in a searchable form on-line for other paleobotanists to use. As of March, 2009, there are more than 71,000
entries in the database. In almost all cases, the complete reference is included. A small proportion of the entries
have been indexed for keywords, mostly the newer literature, and this indexing is continuing.
For the most part, the database reflects our research interests of many years. Thus, there are many references on
Antarctic paleobotany, palynology, geology and stratigraphy. Since I lead a seminar course on Women in Science
every year, there are also many papers from this subject area.
Sorry, but we cannot be a lending library, so please do not request copies of articles from us. Please use the
interlibrary loan service at your institution.
Finally, please help us keep this database current and correct. If you see mistakes or typos, let us know. If you have
papers that are not currently included, please send us copies and we will happily include them.
Thank you and happy searching!
