Boulder, Colorado -- The Geological Society of America has completed digitizing another 23 years of The Geological Society of America Bulletin content. Published between 1922 and 1944, this content includes many well-known authors and subjects, including Joseph Pardee, early works from Beno Gutenberg and Charles Francis Richter, as well as Ian Campbell, Arthur L. Day, and Kirk Bryan.

To celebrate this milestone, J. Harlan Bretz's 1927 work on the Channeled Scablands is open access for a limited time at

The cover-to-cover scanning included hundreds of large foldouts, all of which have been made available to GSA Bulletin and GeoScienceWorld subscribers. Nonsubscribers can access the content via pay per view or GSA's Bloc of Docs service, where access costs as little as $4 per paper. The maps from the content will also be indexed in Geofacets.

The Society plans to digitize the remaining archive, 1890, this fall. The Society's complete e-book archives, dating back to 1934, were digitized and made available last year.
