Access to the AAPG Datapages Database is provided through an endowment by Marta S. Weeks in memory of Lewis G. Weeks, B.A., 1917, The University of Wisconsin.
AAPG Datapages is notable because it combines both an index and full text in one database. The focus is to acquire, compile, and convert current and older publications of interest to the petroleum industry into digital formats. While this collection includes journal publications, it also contains conference proceedings, abstracts, compiled volumes, oil and gas reports, guidebooks, road logs and data. Many of these publications were not widely distributed, are long out of print and difficult to acquire. AAPG Datapages has an extensive archival collection of all AAPG publications (AAPG Bulletins and Special Publications) and numerous other societies.
