Geology and Geography: a Bibliography of Sources on Welsh Geology and Geography

This list contains a selection of titles on the geology and geography of Wales based on the Printed materials collection holdings, arranged alphabetically by title. It is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography of works on this topic. The list also includes some Welsh language works on geology and geography in general. Some of the titles may be found on the open shelves of the Printed materials collection's Reading Room. Users should, however, search for records for the majority of these titles on one of the OPAC databases in order to request them, or to search for other relevant works. Users should also search the microfiche catalogue for details of titles not currently found on the OPAC.
