American Geological Institute (AGI)

The American Geological
Institute (http://www.agiweb.org) was founded in
1948. It plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education
and increasing public awareness of the vital role that geosciences
play in society. AGI supports its programs and
initiatives through sales of its publications and services, royalties,
contracts, grants, contributions, and affiliated society
dues. AGI’s staff provides professional and informational services
related to government affairs; earth-science education,
outreach, human resources, and scholarships; the bibliographic
database GeoRef and its Document Delivery Service; and
the monthly newsmagazine Geotimes and other publications.
The Member Society Council meets twice a year in conjunction
with the annual meetings of the American Association of
Petroleum Geologists and the Geological Society of America.
