    Jurisdiction: Australia

    Description:

    AESIS is an archive database, and is no longer being updated.

    It covered Australian-generated published and unpublished documented materials over the full range of the geosciences, minerals and petroleum and related areas.

    From 1979, it also covered material published on continental Australia by non-Australian sources.

    AESIS commenced in 1976, but coverage goes back to 1975 and much earlier, especially for open-file reports and theses. AESIS was coordinated by the Australian Mineral Foundation until the AMF closed at the end of 2001.

    Material reviewed for inclusion in AESIS was taken from many sources including over 600 journal titles, monographs in series, books, conference papers and proceedings, technical reports, maps, theses, and unpublished and open-file reports predominantly from the State Geological Surveys and Department of Mines and Geoscience Australia.
