USGS Publications for Sale

In 1999 Ross Moore, a geologist from Texas donated his 4,000 volume geology, mining and western history collection to the Ouray County Historical Society (OCHS). Since that time others have also donated their collections so that we now have a library of over 6,000 volumes. We recently opened our new research center and library on Main Street in Ouray which houses our 6,000 volume library, 5,000 photos and 25,000 documents.

We now have many duplicates of USGS Bulletins, Professional Papers and Circulars. OCHS has decided to sell some of the duplicates that are not part of the original Ross Moore donation. All procedes from the sales will go toward maintaining the new Ross Moore Library in the research center. Photos, titles and prices are listed for 19 USGS Bulletins at the following
link. We will ship them USPS media mail and charge you only our shipping cost plus the price of the book. To order a book please emal us at Payment can be made via Paypal.
