Earthquake Reference Collection

Much of the CGS website is under heavy re-construction and will be for some time. The Publications area is working normally, but there is a lot of content from our original site that was in desperate need of updating. Please bear with us as we gather new information and rewrite hundreds of pages of material, gather and properly caption high-resolution images and otherwise bring you some very cool new and archival material never before seen! Stay in touch by subscribing to the >RockTalk< blog where we will announce new items periodically.

Staff at the CGS assembled an Earthquake Reference Collection that brings into one place more than 500 references that pertain broadly to seismicity, structural geology, faulting, and tectonics across the state of Colorado. Many of these references are difficult if not impossible to locate in most libraries.

To access the collection you will need to go to and create a user account. Once you have done this, email us your user name, and we will share with you the contents of the ERC library. Zotero is an open-source platform for authors, students, and the general public to create and share bibliographic libraries. The CGS has no relationship with Zotero except as a user of the platform.
