Abstract: As has been the situation in the past, technological developments will shape the geoscience library of the future. New CD-ROM products, geologic and geographic information systems, expanded bibliographic and numeric databases, expert systems, and online journal files will create a new geoscience information environment. Geologists will be able to interact with this environment from remote locations, using personal computers in their homes and offices. Through the central computers of large libraries users will access locally loaded databases, national and international remote files, and holding of member libraries in the network. In fact, networks and other forms of interlibrary cooperation will take on greater significance as libraries become less self-sufficient and depend more on other institutions. Increased use of document delivery services and online journal files will help compensate for continuing reductions in the number of journal subscriptions in the geologist's own library. Offering users a variety of CD-ROM databases and handling escalating costs of printed material will require major financial commitments on the part of the institution. At the same time highly qualified professional personnel and adequate clerical staff must be attracted and retained. Thus, to a large extent, the availability of adequate financial support will determine the future of the geoscience library.
