SPRI Review 2002: World Data Centre for Glaciology, Cambridge

World Data Centre for Glaciology, Cambridge

Acquisition, cataloguing, and indexing programmes have also continued at World Data Centre for Glaciology, Cambridge, which is set within the Institute library. 180 monographs have been added to the collection and 1444 records added to the in-house database SPRILIB. In addition to the processing of current literature, cataloguing of the historic Seligman collection of pamphlets has continued to make good progress. The WDCGC website was transferred to a new server offering a considerable increase in capacity. This has enabled the database ICE AND SNOW to be reloaded with over 37,000 entries. Its address is now: The Directory of European Glaciology at posts completed directories for Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, together with international organizations involved in glaciology. The entry for Sweden is new this year, and most entries have been updated.
