Help Assure the Future of Geology
at your Alma Mater
Through your establishment of an endowment to the AAPG Foundation Digital Products
Fund – University Subscription, students at your Alma Mater can directly benefit from four generations of
geoscientists’ scientific experiences and achievements.
The Digital Products Fund – University Subscription is a special endowed segment of the
AAPG Foundation Digital Products Fund, which provides a way for alumni to give a gift directed to benefit
their university. The Foundation will pay the Digital Products University subscription fee each year so
students will have uninterrupted access to the entire AAPG Digital Library – over 600,000 pages of
international, national, and regional libraries of petroleum and geology and geophyics information.
A one-time gift of $12,500 will endow a subscription in the name of your designated
University and at the same time honor the donor, an esteemed colleague, a family member, a great teacher
or someone of his or her choosing. The name of the endowment honoree and/or the donor can be
prominently mentioned on the University’s access page.
The Digital Products Fund – University Subscription was initiated in 2004 when a group of
friends of the late Paul McDaniel established a university subscription endowment for Oklahoma State
University. Since that time, endowments have been established at:
Austin College San Diego State University University of Nebraska
Baylor University Southern Methodist University (Lincoln)
Beloit College Stanford University University of Oklahoma
Bryn Mawr College Stephen F. Austin University University of Southern
Colorado School of Mines Texas A&M University
University of Texas (Austin)
Columbia University (NY) Texas Tech University
University of Utah
Franklin & Marshall College Trinity University
University of Wisconsin
Indiana University Tulane University
University of Wyoming
Kansas State University University of Calgary
Virginia Tech University
Kazakh National Technical University of California
Louisiana State University University of Houston
Miami University (Ohio) University of Illinois

Guarantee Students at Your Alma Mater
A Wealth of Geological Information
Decades of hard-working geologists carefully wrote about their oil and gas
discoveries so you and others could cost-effectively explore for hydrocarbons.
Now you have an opportunity to give back to your Alma Mater and make it easy for
students there, or at any other school you choose, to look through whole collections of geological
data for the information they need. Best of all, your gift provides for students in perpetuity —
you’ll be giving to those who study geology now and far into the future — as long as your Alma
Mater has a geology department.
You see, AAPG Publications has been carefully compiling our exploration heritage,
and students at your Alma Mater can look up this rich heritage in The AAPG Digital Library.
A Student From Your Alma Mater May Unlock
The Secrets to Our Energy Future With One Stroke of a Computer Key
You can make dreams of discovering
the next huge hydrocarbon field a reality.
How? Because the AAPG has compiled over 600,000 pages of maps and geological information
into AAPG Digital Library. Current collections available today are:
AAPG Bulletin • AAPG Special Publications
Ardmore Geological Society • Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum Geology
East Texas Geological Society • Fort Worth Geological Society
Geological Society of Trinidad and Tobago • Gulf Coast Assoc. Geological Societies (GCAGS)
Houston Geological Society • Indonesian Petroleum Association
Kansas Geological Society • Lafayette Geological Society
Journal of Petroleum Geology • Journal of Sedimentary Research (SEPM)
New Orleans Geological Society • Ohio Geological Society
Oklahoma City Geological Society • Tulsa Geological Society
Panhandle (Amarillo) Geological Society • Wyoming Geological Association
Your gift will make this information immediately available for students to access with the touch of
a computer key.
The AAPG Digital Library Future
The following collections — thousands more pages — are being added to the online Digital
Library and will be available to students in the next 18 months:
Abilene Geological Society • Canadian Association of Petroleum Geologists Special Publications
Circum-Pacific Council of Energy and Mineral Resources • Corpus Christi Geological Society
Dallas Geological Society • Montana Geological Society • North Dakota Geological Society
Pacific Section of AAPG • Saskatchewan Geological Society • Society of Organic Petrology
Your gift to The AAPG Foundation is an amazing opportunity.
It allows you to guarantee three things: generations of students will
get the kind of help that made your career possible; your Alma Mater will
continue to educate the leaders in our field; and you will be supporting the
AAPG Foundation in amassing this critical Digital Library.
Give to the Foundation Digital Products Fund – University Subscription today!
My one-time gift of $12,500 to the AAPG Foundation will endow a university subscription at my
Alma Mater, providing the entire online AAPG/Datapages Digital Library to students as long as it
has a geology department.
